    United make most of break

    It will have been exactly four weeks between matches when Manchester United next take to the field in the Premier League.

    The Red Devils are due to travel the short distance to rivals Manchester City on October 2nd following the international break.

    And it will be United's first taste of league football since beating leaders Arsenal at Old Trafford on September 4th.

    The club's last two scheduled games – away at Crystal Palace and home to Leeds – have both been postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

    The Athletic have revealed that Erik ten Hag and his management team will be making the most of the extended break to evaluate his squad and staff.

    “We have many meetings — we have to improve the structures in and around the club,” said the Dutchman.

    “And we will also look to the window in January or next summer already.”

    Ten Hag takes in U21s

    Erik ten Hag paid a surprise visit to watch Manchester United's U21 side in action against West Ham on Friday.

    With no weekend match for his senior team, the United boss was joined by his assistant Mitchell van der Gaag and technical director Darren Fletcher in taking in the youngsters' 1-1 draw with the Hammers at Leigh Sports Village.

    And the Manchester Evening News suggests that Ten Hag may be about to add a couple of Charlies, destined for the big-time, to his squad.

    The Dutchman is said to be monitoring striker Charlie McNeill, who made his first team debut as a sub earlier this month in the Europa League against Real Sociedad.

    Ten Hag has also been impressed with Charlie Savage – son of former Wales nuisance Robbie,

    Savage made his senior debut in Europe last term, and stood out during an impressive pre-season campaign.

    Good morning, Man Utd fans

    Man Utd players and staff were hit by a bout of suspected food poisoning following their Europa League victory in Moldova.

    The group travelled back from their 2-0 away win against FC Sheriff last Thursday straight after the game on a private plane.

    But members of the party began to feel unwell on Friday.

    It is understood up to 12 of the United party were affected.

    The club is trying to look into whether it was something the group had eaten while in Chisinau or on the plane on the way back.

    A handful of players missed training on Friday because of it but were okay again to train Saturday, while others missed Saturday.

    Those affected who were due on international duty have still been able to join up with their countries.

    Man Utd are reportedly interested in signing Antoine Griezmann, according to reports.

    The Athletic claim the Red Devils enquired about the French striker in the summer.

    Griezmann is currently on loan at Atletico Madrid from Barcelona.
    The report adds that United could try to sign the 31-year-old again in January.

    While, Man Utd looked into the possibility of signing France right-back Benjamin Pavard in the summer.

    According to Telefoot, the Red Devils wanted to bring in the Bayern Munich star as competition for Diogo Dalot.

    However, after they struggled to sell Aaron Wan-Bissaka they dropped their interest.

    Suck on that

    Sergej Milinkovic-Savic sucked on a pink dummy to celebrate a goal and his baby girl joy.

    The Lazio midfielder always plays it cool over talk of joining Manchester United but didn't hold his feelings back on becoming a father as he lent over to blow a kiss into a TV camera.

    The Serbia superstar teed up the first of Ciro Immobile's two early goals before netting the third strike in a 4-0 Serie A win at Cremonese.

    The Spain-born creator, 27, looks happier than ever at Lazio.

    Di Maria’s grovelling apology

    Angel Di Maria has apologised for getting sent off and inadvertently causing Juventus to fall to a shock defeat to AC Monza.

    The former Manchester United star was given a straight red card in the first half after swinging an elbow into the midriff of an AC Monza player.

    Juventus went on to lose the game, with Chris Gytkjaer grabbing a second half goal to open the deadlock.

    The goal subsequently gave them their first ever Serie A victory, with the club earning promotion from Serie B last season.

    It also compounded a stuttering start to the season for the ‘Old Lady’.

    After the game Di Maria, 34, took responsibility for his actions and wrote a grovelling apology to the fans.

    On his Instagram he wrote: “The defeat is my fault. I’m very sorry.

    “I’m a professional, but also a human being who makes mistakes and knows how to recognise them.”

    Rooney 'bored'

    Wayne Rooney admits he's "bored" as the DC United boss misses the "little things" with wife Coleen and their four kids back in England.

    But the Manchester United legend still feels lucky and focuses on "something" to look forward to" with his family every few weeks.

    Rooney, 36, who resigned as Derby chief in June, told The Times: ”The biggest issue about coming here was leaving the family behind.

    "That was a big decision. You miss the small things. Picking the kids up from school and things like that. 

    "But there’s people in much worse jobs who don’t get to see their kids before they’re working away from home for months, and aren’t in as fortunate a situation as me. 

    "So, it’s life. I speak to them every day on FaceTime."

    Bizarre Rojo ban

    Former Manchester United ace Marcos Rojo has been handed a bizarre suspension in Argentina after being sent off for a horror challenge.

    Boca Juniors captain Rojo, 32, took part in his team’s 1-0 victory over rivals River Plate at the Bombonera last week.

    However, the centre-back was sent off in the seventh minute of stoppage time, just a few seconds before full-time, after a dangerous tackle on Nicolas de la Cruz.

    De la Cruz went for a header at the back and the Argentina international came at him with a high challenge that almost got him in the head.

    The referee didn’t think twice as he showed the 32-year-old the red card and gave him his marching orders.

    The Argentine FA then handed Rojo a one-match suspension, which didn’t allow him to play at Lanus on Thursday.

    But the powers that be didn’t stop there as they also issued a bizarre punishment that doesn’t allow him to wear the Boca armband for a month.

    But the powers that be didn't stop there as they also issued a bizarre punishment that doesn't allow him to wear the Boca armband for a month.

    That means he probably won't get to captain the Argentinean giants until October 12 when they take on Sarmiento.

    Ten Hag visits Man Utd U21’s

    Erik ten Hag paid a shock visit to watch Manchester United’s U21’s take on West Ham yesterday – just a few hours after flying back from Moldova.

    The Dutchman, 52, helped guide the Red Devils to a 2-0 victory over Sheriff in the Europa League on Thursday.

    Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo both scored as United bounced back from last week’s shock defeat to claim all three points.

    The team travelled back from Moldova the following morning, with each player given permission to have the day off.

    But, instead of spending the rest of the day at his Manchester home, Ten Hag took a trip to the Moss Lane Stadium in Altrincham to watch United’s U21’s in action against West Ham.

    Merson stunned by Shaw’s England call-up

    Paul Merson has revealed he was shocked to learn that Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw had been called up for England's two Nations League games later this month.

    The Three Lions face off against Germany and Italy in their final matches before the World Cup.

    And the Man Utd full-back was included in Gareth Southgate's squad despite playing second fiddle to Tyrell Malacia at club level.

    Reacting to the news, Merson said: "I was shocked with the Luke Shaw one, if I’m being honest.

    "The amount of full-backs we have in this country and talented full-backs at that. I was shocked with that."

    Ten Hag on international break

    Erik ten Hag has said he will plan "work structures" while the majority of his Manchester United squad are away on international duty.

    Speaking to the club website, he said: "I don’t have the players.

    "What can we plan? We can plan work structures with the players who will be there. They will get a break but also have good sessions.

    "We can work on specifics but, when 90 per cent of the squad is not there, we cannot work on development. That is clear."

    Rooney "booted and butted" Bruce

    Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has revealed that he once "butted" Alex Bruce because his dad, Steve, previously played for the Red Devils.

    Rooney, 36, joined United from Everton in 2004 – eight years after Steve Bruce left Old Trafford to sign for Birmingham City.

    At the time, Alex, now 37, was a first team regular at Oldham Athletic having been loaned out by parent club Blackburn Rovers.

    But, the two came to blows early in their respective careers because Rooney "wanted to make a name for himself."

    The ex-England international told The Times: "I remember playing against Alex Bruce when I was younger and purposely wanted to boot him, because of his dad (Steve).

    "It’s a way to make a name for yourself. And I did — I booted him, I butted him once. We’re good friends, me and Alex, but had a lot of run-ins on the pitch. . . purely because of Steve."
