​Man Utd to concentrate on tactical work during Dubai break

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has taken his first-team squad to the Middle East for a five-day warm-weather training camp with the intention of concentrating on tactics.

Mourinho told MUTV: "We need to recover but at the same time we also need to train because during this crazy time we have not had many times to work on details that you want to work on.

"It's been more about the recovery from the match and the travelling and the preparations for the next one without time to work.

"If we can have time to have a good, nice week to recover some injured players and tired players and, at the same time, work on some tactical details, I think it would be good for the second part of the season."
