Manchester United have had a busy start to their pre-season, with Louis van Gaal insisting that Ryan Giggs had a two-session a day training schedule while the manager was still competing with his national side, the Netherlands in the World Cup.
On Friday, the squad, including the new manager, flew out direct to Los Angeles to embark on their pre-season tour of America. A tour that will see them play four pre-season friendly matches against LA Galaxy, Inter Milan, AS Roma and Real Madrid before the squad return for a friendly against Valencia at Old Trafford.
On Saturday afternoon, the squad took part in their first training session in Los Angeles, training in 27 degrees heat, the back-room staff put the tour squad players through their paces with Louis van Gaal watching on. View some of today’s pictures in our gallery below:
