Man Utd fret over spying devices during team talks

Manchester United have taken to sweeping their team hotel for bugs to prevent Louis van Gaal’s squad discussion being listened to, according to the Daily Mail.

The reports implies Old Trafford officials searched the Lowry Hotel for listening devices as the Dutchman prepared his side for the Premier League clash with Liverpool, from which they emerged victorious.

Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and new signing Anthony Martial secured all three points for the Red Devils in the latest edition of a bitter North-West rivalry.

Since a recording device was found in the hotel while the club were coached by previous boss David Moyes, officials at the club are prone to taking additional security measures.

Checking behind curtains and under tables is now common practice before tactics are discussed, in an effort to prevent a similar fiasco, the report states.

Dutch star Blind revealed his goal came from a training ground routine, after he netted following Herrera’s free kick.

‘We practiced this goal, and this move, a lot,’ said the former Ajax star, speaking to ManUtd.com.

The Red Devils now prepare for their return to the Champions League proper in their clash with PSV Eindhoven, after a year out of the competition.
