Fans were protesting against the club’s owners following the controversial European Super League plans

United supporters were expressing their anger following plans backed by the Glazer family to join a proposed European Super League, which collapsed soon after.

The plans added to years of discontent and protests from supporters following the controversial takeover by the Glazers in 2005.

Outside the ground, large numbers of supporters were also protesting.

A protest was planned outside the ground at 2pm, with fans congregating at least an hour before.

It is believed those who gained access to the ground did so via the Munich Tunnel, after pushing down barriers, despite the attempts of security guards to prevent that happening.

A large number of fans ran back out of the stadium complex at around 2.20pm.

Staff were seen clearing rubbish from the pitch after the fans had left the Old Trafford pitch.

The Premier League maintain that the game will still go ahead as planned at 4.30pm.

Fans had also been protesting outside the hotel where both teams had been staying at.
