Manchester United are ‘considering handing out song sheets’ in an attempt to improve atmosphere at home games.
The Old Trafford support has been subject to criticism from Jose Mourinho throughout the season, with the Portuguese most recently making a pointed comment about the fans earlier this month.
Mourinho has described Old Trafford as a “quiet stadium”, suggesting that Portsmouth’s Fratton Park was able to generate considerably more noise.
Fans sought a meeting with the Portuguese over his comments about supporters last year, but the manager declined.
The Times now report that United are putting measures in place to improve home atmosphere, including handing song sheets out to fans.
‘One suggestion, which the club are pondering, involves printing out the lyrics to United chants and handing them to supporters before they enter the ground,’ Paul Hirst writes.
‘Another option is to have the lyrics to the songs printed in the match-day programme or posting them on the club’s website so that fans who attend fewer games know the words before they get to the stadium.
‘United plan to conduct a survey of supporters in the close season.’
