A group of Manchester United supporters blocked the entrances to the club's Carrington training ground this morning, in a protest against the club's owners.

As fallout from the failed European Super League launch continues, a group of around 20 supporters breached security at the training group, unfurling banners which read '51% MUFC 20', 'We decide when you play' and 'Glazers out'.

The 51% banner is a reference to mooted proposals to follow the German model of club ownership where over 50% club shares must be held by supporters.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and members of his coaching staff spoke to the protesters who, for a time, prevented players from gaining access to the lane into the training ground.

A statement from the club confirmed: ""At approximately 9am this morning a group gained access to the club training ground. The manager and others spoke to them. Buildings were secure and the group has now left the site."

Yesterday, Joel Glazer admitted "we got it wrong" after the United co-chairman saw attempts by him and 11 other club owners to launch the Super League blow up in swift and spectacular fashion.

"Over the past few days, we have all witnessed the great passion which football generates, and the deep loyalty our fans have for this great club," Glazer said in an open letter to supporters.

"You made very clear your opposition to the European Super League, and we have listened. We got it wrong, and we want to show that we can put things right.

"Although the wounds are raw and I understand that it will take time for the scars to heal, I am personally committed to rebuilding trust with our fans and learning from the message you delivered with such conviction.

"We continue to believe that European football needs to become more sustainable throughout the pyramid for the long-term.

"However, we fully accept that the Super League was not the right way to go about it."
