Man United: Meet the Team experience with Thomas Cook Sport

by Sam Peoples

At the start of February, we were lucky enough to enjoy a brilliant experience thanks to Wayne Rooney, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Juan Mata, Matteo Darmian, David de Gea, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson walked in. It was mint to meet them all.

For me, that was the best part of the day. When that training session finished, the players and Louis van Gaal came over to meet us all and once again I felt like a kid. It doesn’t matter how old you get, meeting the players of the team you support is always ace.

It was a once in a lifetime experience which offered me some genuine insight into how Manchester United run behind the scenes and the facilities were every bit as good as you’d imagine.

The day started with a pick-up from Old Trafford and we pulled up into the training ground after a quick coach journey. It might have been raining but it didn’t dampen any excitement as I felt like a kid again going to meet the players.

Once inside, we sat down to watch a really interesting video about the facilities and everything which the players have to use but with that out of the way, Sir Alex Ferguson’s kit man Albert Morgan and United legend Andy Cole sat down to have an open Q+A session which was fantastic.

Albert talked about stories of Eric Cantona’s antics in the dressing room, how Cole was so fussy with his boots and plenty of others which were amazing to hear from somebody who was so close to the team.

Then, only a few minutes later, we were meeting the first-team players. Wayne Rooney, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind, Juan Mata, Matteo Darmian, David de Gea, Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson walked in. It was mint to meet them all.
