Manchester United’s players have been working hard in the summer heat to try and get in match shape ahead of the upcoming season.

United’s players are currently on a pre-season summer camp in Surrey, choosing the stay in the UK.

This decision has been vindicated by a summer heatwave bringing temperatures to England normally associated with tour destinations.

 

Meanwhile Arsenal’s planned summer tour of America was cancelled this week due to Covid, throwing their pre-season preparations into disarray.

United’s players have been working hard in the heat, as these pictures show. The 27 players on the camp, including several young players were pictured sprinting and doing on ball work competing against each other.

Hannibal, Jesse Lingard, Shola Shoretire, Mason Greenwood, Facundo Pellistri, Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Tahith Chong, Dylan Levitt, Teden Mengi, and Scott McTominay are among the players pictured below.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was able to take a more relaxed view, as his players had the sweat running down their faces in the blazing heat.

The most unusual picture from the session saw full-back Brandon Williams try out in goal. Hopefully he won’t be required to do a ‘John O’Shea against Tottenham’ at any point in the future, but he looked competent enough.
