Manchester United will have increased security for their Europa League clash with Anderlecht.
The Red Devils are in Brussels for the quarter-final first leg in the aftermath of the attack on Borussia Dortmund’s team bus.
Dortmund were attacked on their way to their encounter with Monaco, with defender Marc Bartra injured and taken to hospital.
A note at the scene of the attack warned sports stars were being targeted.
And United are leaving nothing for chance during their trip to Brussels.
A major operation was launched as United flew into the Belgian capital on Wednesday with protection at an all-time high.
The Red Devils’ team bus will be shadowed by armed police as it makes its way to the Constant Vanden Stock Stadium.
The police will also be supported by snipers and helicopters, reports the Sun.
Speaking ahead of the encounter, Jose Mourinho insisted United must trust the security measures in place.
“Well, I try not to think much about it,” said the manager on Wednesday.
“I try to focus on our job and to focus on what we love, which is to play.
