Following Romelu Lukaku’s goal last Friday which saw Manchester United beat Derby 2-0, the players celebrated in one big huddle. They put their arms around each other and jumped up and down in what appeared to be an over the top reaction at beating a Championship side in the FA Cup.
Jose Mourinho later revealed that this celebration was because the players knew that if they beat Derby, and didn’t have to play a replay, they would be able to jet off to Dubai for some warm weather training.
If you have a replay, we don’t go to Dubai and everybody wants to go. Did you see the players celebrating the second goal? Everybody wants to have a week of good training, good facilities, sun.
Today the players were pictured in Manchester Airport in equally good spirits as they enjoy a mini-break from the four degree temperature in Manchester.
