Manchester United star has warned INEOS about potential pre-season problem



| Last Updated:


One Manchester United star has already warned INEOS about a potential pre-season problem they will face this summer.

The Reds are eager to improve their performances ahead of next season following a disappointing overall campaign last term.

While FA Cup glory provided an ecstatic end to the season, Erik ten Hag’s men will need to show major improvements, and they will hope that injuries are nowhere near as detrimental as they have been over the last 12 months.

Over 65 different cases of illness or injury last term heavily impacted Ten Hag’s side. Various reasons can be attached to that problem, including the workload from the prior season, when United played 62 games.

The pre-season schedule was another aspect that was criticised last summer after the club travelled to the United States to play four friendly games after fixtures in Norway and Scotland before ending their pre-season with a game at Old Trafford.

New York, San Diego, Texas and Las Vegas were all destinations for United’s games during that tour, and the travelling had a clear impact on the players.

“There’s been a lot of games and too much travelling, to be honest,” admitted Christian Eriksen following the clash against Borussia Dortmund at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

This summer, United are heading back to the States – with warm-up games in Norway and Scotland once again. However, so far, they are scheduled for three games in the United States rather than four.

Despite Eriksen’s prior concern, United seems to have a similar travelling schedule as their last tour. Hopefully, there will be no issues this time around.
