Jamie Carragher claims Manchester United reduced the size of away dressing room

The home dressing room at Old Trafford looks awfully swanky.

Ahead of Manchester United's Premier League opener against Leicester on Friday evening, the hosts unveiled the improvements they'd made to the home side's dressing room over the summer.

United gave the changing area a complete overhaul, providing each player with a cushioned seat and modern locker ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Three massage tables sit in the centre of the room for any players who require treatment at half-time or full-time of matches at the Theatre of Dreams.

The home dressing room has also increased in size in recent times but, apparently, the added space has come at the expense of away teams.

According to Jamie Carragher, who was making his return to Sky Sports commentary, the Red Devils ate into the away dressing room to give themselves more space.

"I remember him [Sir Alex Ferguson] at the end of the corridor screaming back at us as players, our managers," Carragher said.

"These are different times. It was quite heated but this is what you want in a huge game.

"But this dressing room is completely different to what I can remember - it's basically been cut in half so Manchester United can have a better dressing room that size."
