Louis van Gaal wants to make huge changes at Manchester United’s Carrington training ground by having a 26ft fence built around it, as per reports.
The Dutchman apparently wants to improve the security measures at the Aon training complex, and therefore wants to construct fences that are expected to be a mix of 26ft and 16ft in height, and made up of rebound boards and mesh.
And according to the Daily Mail, a planning application has been submitted to the Trafford council by the club’s chief officials, requesting eight fences to be put up around four training pitches, along with a warm-up area and a goalkeepers’ training location.
The application states that these aforementioned proposed changes will “provide additional privacy to first-team training and improve the overall appearance of the training centre.”
These changes suggested by Van Gaal indicate that the 63-year-old most likely believes he’ll remain at Manchester United next season, and completely see out his 3 year contract at the club, despite reports stating otherwise and suggesting that the former Netherlands’ national team coach is set to be replaced by Jose Mourinho this summer.
