Video: Manchester United players enjoying themselves on pre-season tour

Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Joel Pereira, Ander Herrera and Eric Bailly have been enjoying themselves on their pre-season tour of the United States.

Jose Mourinho’s squad jetted off for Los Angeles on Sunday and completed their first training session – with new signing Romelu Lukaku present – in the scorching Californian heat on Monday.

They will play eight games in as many cities over a 28 day period, starting with a game against LA Galaxy on July 16.

And the aforementioned four have been videoed taking a quick trip around an athletics track on a gulf buggy during a double training session.

I’m starting to think that Fosu-Mensah is being kept in the team only partly for footballing reasons; the Dutchman, at almost every turn, appears to raise the spirits of his teammates with his affable teenage mannerisms, using Bailly as a frequent target of fun. He just seems like a great guy.

Now, this golf buggy trip will not necessarily help with United’s malaise in front of goal at home or their failure to dominate against their top six rivals, but these moments of bonding and momentary detraction from the graft of pre-season are simply crucial for when it comes to building a harmonised unit ahead of next season.
