Security has been tightened around the stadium, but sources told ESPN that there were fears that some fans might draw more attention to the protest by trying to block the arrival of the team’s coach in an attempt to delay the start of the match or even force the match to be postponed. .
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he supported the right of fans to protest but he urged them to do so peacefully.
“It is important to listen to the views of the fans and to communicate better,” said Solskjaer. “My job is to focus on the football side and to have the best possible team.
“As I said before I got support, I had great support from the club and the owners and I am sure I will get support again to go a step further. When the protests start, it is important they go in good style and we keep calm. . “
