The Manchester United Football Club is planning to spend this week in Doha working on team-building exercises, Goal.com has reported.
The team, which Qatar has repeatedly been rumored to try to buy, will head here after today’s Premier League match against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, the report states.
Manager Alex Ferguson, which the Guardian says has the difficult job of keeping his large and talented squad happy, will lead the exercises at Qatar’s Aspire Zone.
According to Goal.com:
As well as boosting team spirit, Sir Alex will be hoping the trip can aid the recovery of Ashley Young and Jonny Evans, who are both currently sidelined through injury, as well as prepare Wayne Rooney for regular playing time following his return from a knee problem on Wednesday.
With snow also potentially offering a disruption to United’s training schedule, Ferguson is also eager to suffer minimal hindrances in his side’s preparations.
