Here is the secret behind United’s success

The first thing that strikes you about Manchester United’s multi million pound, hi tech training ground is that nothing actually strikes you at all. No road signs to mark the way. Camouflaged by an electricity sub station on one side and a chemical plant on the other. Welcome to the secret world of Fortress Carrington where the combatants are groomed, honed and prepared for battle, scientifically equipped with the ultimate physical tools for the job and rewarded for their labours with Presidential style comforts.
