PICTURES: United players meet ex-Madrid star on last night in Dubai

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United’s players have now landed back in England after their warm weather break in Dubai ahead of this weekend’s game against Crystal Palace.

The main intention of the trip was to allow the players to recharge their batteries ahead of the last part of this season and on their last night, they bumped into ex-Real Madrid defender Michel Salgado and stopped to take a few pictures with him and his son.

From all the pictures that have emerged from Dubai, the players look revitalised. Of course, it could just be only on camera but a break away from the pressures of United’s shortfalls this year in the Premier League should have given the players a genuine boost.

Despite the fact that top four looks like a pipe dream, United’s season is far from over. We are still in the UEFA Champions League knock-out stage and so long as there is a mathematical possibility we can finish in the top four, United need to give 110% to the cause – starting with a win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
