Why Man Utd stars have been banned from signing autographs near training ground

As reported by the Telegraph, a sign has now been put up telling fans that players are now longer permitted to stop because it could cause danger on the road.

It may seem an excessive move to stop fans attempting to getting autographs at this location, but there will be large groups of children during the summer holidays looking to get a glimpse of their United heroes, which can be dangerous.

However, fans can still gather to meet the players near the training ground on Isherwood Road.

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are preparing for Monday night’s tough fixture against Wolves at Molineux.

Solskjaer has lost on both occasions away to Wolves as manager but will hope to continue his side’s momentum after their crushing victory over Chelsea in the opening game.
