A Minimum Rest Period!
It would appear that Louis van Gaal is intent on getting the Manchester United ship steadied as quickly as he can.
Reports in the tabloid press suggest that those United players who were on duty with England, during their dismal World Cup, will be given the minimum 21 rest period they`re allowed.
The likes of Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Luke Shaw are expected to be on the aircraft that departs from Manchester airport for the pre-season tour to the USA a week on Friday.
Although it may, on paper, look harsh, it surely has to be the way forward doesn`t it!
