Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has insisted that the players are enjoying working under new boss Jose Mourinho.
The former Chelsea manager was appointed as Louis van Gaal’s successor in May before starting off his first official day as Red Devils’ head coach in the first week of June.
However, Mourinho initiated his first training session only last week ahead of club’s pre-season tour to China and Man Utd’s veteran midfielder Michael Carrick has provided an insight of how things have started after completion of first week of training under the 53-year-old.
“It’s been very good,” Carrick told MUTV. “We came in last Wednesday and have done over a week with him now and it’s been enjoyable. The sessions are very good, it hasn’t broken us yet and hasn’t been as hard as you might think!
“That’s what the first few weeks of pre-season are for, to get that base of fitness and mentally prepare yourself for the year ahead.”
Man Utd face Wigan Athletic in a friendly match on Saturday before flying off to China next week for their annual pre-season tour.
