Manchester United out for team meal

A photo of Manchester United’s collective order for a preseason team meal has surfaced online on Thursday, raising more than a few eyebrows.

The Red Devils have just over a week to wait before they kick off their season, hosting north-west rivals Leeds United on the opening day of the 2021-22 campaign.

Currently, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are in Fife, Scotland, and met in a Dundee restaurant called Brooks for their evening meal.

Understandably, due to the size of their party, the club pre-ordered. However, a copy of this very pre-order managed to make its way onto Twitter, and Manchester United and rival fans alike tore into the players’ choices with glee.

As can be seen above, the players had a choice of a starter, main course and dessert, in addition to sides of their choice.

Star man Bruno Fernandes opted for goats cheese, followed by Steak (medium) and a sticky toffee pudding, accompanied with sides of Sweet potato fries, Halloumi and Spinach.

Meanwhile, Jesse Lingard went for a plain Cheeseburger, while fellow England international Mason Greenwood opted for a well-done steak, causing the young forward to trend on twitter.

Twitter reacts

Fans took to Twitter to express their surprise, disappointment and shock at the stars’ meal choices, much of which centered on Greenwood:

People were also quick to pick up on Luke Shaw’s order, with the England full-back having previously come under fire from former boss Jose Mourinho over his weight:

Meanwhile, Jesse Lingard was also under the microscope:

With the strict diets enforced on footballers for much of the year, including pasta at 9am and cramming down food post-match, it is perhaps unsurprising that, when offered the chance, players opt to shake things up.
