Man United players treated to spa after Burnley defeat

Manchester United sent their players on a spa day at a luxury resort on Thursday — the morning after they were booed off the pitch at Old Trafford.

The United squad turned up at The Mere Golf Resort & Spa in the wake of Wednesday night’s dire 2-0 defeat to Burnley that saw angry fans also turn on the club’s hierarchy.

It is the same exclusive Cheshire retreat where 22 Instagram models stayed earlier this month before allegedly joining Manchester City players in a ‘Bunga Bunga style’ party.

Some fans will be shocked to learn that the players were being pampered after suffering their third defeat in four league games and losing at home to Burnley for the first time in more than half a century. United are also set to go on a warm-weather training camp in Marbella during the winter break next month.

Assistant manager Michael Carrick was first into the spa at 10.40am on Thursday — closely followed by Nemanja Matic, before captain Harry Maguire and the rest of the team went in.

The players not involved on Wednesday night — including Eric Bailly, Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong and James Garner — had a behind-closed-doors game against Liverpool Under 21s at Carrington.

Paul Pogba was back at United’s training base on Thursday for gym work, but remains on crutches following ankle surgery.
