Manchester United's first-team squad is currently reaping the benefits of a warm-weather training break in Qatar.

Sir Alex's men flew out after Sunday's 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur and the lads certainly look like they're enjoying themselves at the impressive Aspire Academy facilities.

Before the trip, Michael Carrick told MUTV that he felt the visit to Qatar would prove to be "an important break" for the squad.

"It's a busy season and there are busy times ahead," he said. "It's about recuperating and getting ready for the next game."
