The changes keep on coming at Carrington.First, Jose Mourinho consigned the spy cameras installed by predecessor Louis van Gaal to monitor training performances of his Manchester United squad to the bin.And now the club want to install giant nine-metre high floodlights on the first-team squad car park, presumably so they can spot which Bentley is theirs. Manchester United are set to install new floodlights in the first-team car park at their Carrington training base  Reds stars such as Wayne Rooney will have no problem finding their cars with the new nine-metre high lights Mephis Depay will have easier access to his Bentley when the planned new path to the car park is complete The new lights are part of a bid to look after he likes of Marouane Fellaini, rather than picking on their faults   Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata snapped a car park selfie as they returned for pre-seasonThe new additions are so tall that United have had to ask for planning permission to make them the latest new fixture at their 44-hectare Aon Training Complex.They shine a light on the new regime, which would appear to be tailored more towards looking after the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Co, rather than picking faults in their performances, which was a speciality under the Dutchman.United say the existing lights are not bright enough and will be removed. They add that there is ‘a continual need to update the training centre in order for it to maintain its status as a world class training facility and meet the expectations and requirements of Manchester United, a world leading football club’ and say the lights are needed to improve vehicular and pedestrian safety on the first-team car park.  New boss Jose Mourinho has also removed the spy cameras installed by Louis van Gaal to review training Daley Blind was favourite of Mourinho's predecessor and will have to get used to Portugese's new approach  The Portuguese is seen as more of a players' manager than the more authoritarian DutchmanA path has also been laid to enable the players to walk straight to their motors.Mourinho is viewed as a players' manager and is quickly making his presence felt.The upgrades will impress United’s stars, who were said to be delighted when the cameras were dumped. They had been seen as a means of spying on them and an unnecessary intrusion which characterised Van Gaal’s nitpicking rein.
