Watch United stars playing football again!

It feels like a long time since we've seen the Manchester United players involved in a game but our exclusive training footage shows some seven-a-side match action from last Friday.

Following the news that the Premier League is due to get back under way on Wednesday 17 June, with the Emirates FA Cup quarter-finals, including our tie with Norwich City, now scheduled for the weekend of 27/28 June, there remains hope that football will resume later this month, if it is safe to do so.

Certainly, contact and tackling is now allowed in training and that is evident when Bruno Fernandes is floored by Axel Tuanzebe in the build-up to one of the goals!

The squad took part in a small-sided game on Friday and, as you can see, it got quite competitive…

There is some great finishing on display, with Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial looking as sharp as ever in front of goal.

Jesse Lingard, Tim Fosu-Mensah and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, among others, also hit the net during our clip as three teams took part in a round-robin tournament - the reds, purples and greens.

Look out for great saves by David De Gea towards the beginning and end of our video, as it concludes with the greens keeping the reds at bay until the final whistle - much to the team in the red bibs' frustration!

It is great just to see the boys back out on the training pitch and playing a game - hopefully, it won't be too long now until we see United competing for real in the Premier League.
