Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now officially confirmed the 28-man travelling squad that will make up Manchester United’s summer 2019 pre-season tour.
The Red Devils will play five tour matches during their exhibitions, starting with Perth Glory and Leeds United in Australia. After that, they will clash with Inter Milan in Singapore, Tottenham Hotspur in China and then finally AC Milan in Wales.
The squad has already left Manchester, as Jesse Lingard shared an update from the team’s plane on their way to Australia. Rivals and friends were quick to react to the attacker’s Instagram snap.
Kenji Gorre and Crystal Palace’s Jeffrey Schlupp were among the first ones to the scene and they were clearly impressed by the sheer quality in Lingard’s snap.
Also amongst the replies was Scott Thomas, the director of Social PR, a Manchester-based PR agency, who called the lads “ballers”.
There were plenty other players and non-football personas replying too as the squad set off for Australia, where they will open their pre-season tour with a game against Perth Glory on Saturday.
