Reds turn up the heat in Dubai
The fitness work continued in earnest for the Manchester United squad on day two in Dubai, as Jose Mourinho stepped up the intensity of this week’s warm-weather training camp.
The manager put his players through another lengthy session at the impressive Nad Al Sheba Complex, with some ball work from the off during the session, as well as some pass and move drills.
Mourinho was clearly pleased to be back on the training pitch with his players, working hard on tactics and intricate areas of play, following a hectic run of fixtures that prevented any such sessions.
Antonio Valencia and Michael Carrick once again took part in full training, which is a major boost for the boss ahead of the Premier League match against Stoke City at Old Trafford next Monday night.

Speaking on MUTV, former United defender David May was adamant that this mid-season trip to Dubai will have a positive impact on the team. “The players can relax because they’ve had goodness knows how many games over the last few weeks,” he said. “They can train hard in nice weather, but they can also recharge the batteries after a ridiculous run. Then they’ll be ready to go again.”
