Manchester United reportedly took a TEN MINUTE flight after realising the M6 motorway was closed on Friday afternoon.
The Red Devils face Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this afternoon , with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer well aware that he needs three points in order to keep the spotlight shone elsewhere.
Solskjaer will have wanted to ensure that the preparations for the game were seamless, but as per The Sun, United’s travel plans hit a major bump in the road (pardon the pun) after the M6 was unexpectedly shut.
As a result, as is mentioned in the report, the club made the controversial decision to fly for just ten minutes from Manchester Airport to East Midlands Airport, merely 100 miles.
Sympathisers with the climate did not however find that funny. According to them there really was no justification for taking such a short and pointless flight. There are alternate ways to get from Manchester to Leicester, even if they will be lengthier and more complicated.
