Manchester United have imposed a ban on their players signing autographs for fans at the team's training ground.The United manager Sir Alex Ferguson announced the ban in the match day programme for the Blackburn match, which United won 2-1."I offer apologies to fans who come to the Carrington training ground looking for autographs," said Ferguson."The problem is that we have had too many opportunists selling on signed merchandise. They are not fans at all."Five years ago, United imposed a similar ban, which was aimed at dealers in football memorabilia.
