5 reasons why you should be excited about the Pre-season tour.

The Manchester United squad will face their greatest rival Liverpool in Bangkok on 12th of July, that's about 4 days later. Then they will move on to Australia where the Old Trafford club would face two different clubs, Melbourne Victory and Crystal Palace.

Crystal palace and Melbourne Victory will be the first opponents United would be playing against. Then after those two the United team would go against Aston Villa on the 23rd of July at Optus stadium. 

This is an exciting period of the year for Man United fans. Everyone needs to be excited about the Tour. Below are five reasons you should be excited and ready to watch the matches especially this moment that we have a new manager.


It’s been a while we had a 'Tour'

It’s been almost three (3) years now, since Manchester United ever embarked on a pre-season Tour abroad. Would you believe that?!

Actually, Perth Glory, Leeds, Tottenham, Kristiansund, internazionale and AC Milan were the clubs we faced in Singapore, Perth, Shanghai, Oslo and Cardiff back then in 2019 summer. 

The Covid-19 pandemic was a serious barrier against international travel in 2020 and 2021, this means that United have been able to play only domestic friendlies. And even this domestic games are played with reduced attendance or no crowed attendance at all.

But the 2022 Tour would be different and United can play in front of a full crowd which includes the United fervent fans all over the world. We can't wait to enjoy the feeling again, in front of fans. That is why you have to be excited about the fast coming 2022 Tour.

Erik Ten Hag welcome

It’s been almost over 2 months now, that the club has announced Ten Hag as the new manager. And it’s also been a month since he has been unveiled at Old Trafford.

The United's fans and even football fans all over the world are being used expectant to see how he'll work with the squad. 

The Tour 2022 will be the true start of Erik Ten Hag's era. Everyone at the club will be watching the Tour 2022 matches. To see how the Dutchman would apply his footballing philosophy to the United squad.

Marcus Rashford possible comeback

It is very clear that last season was Marcus Rashford must tough season, as a Man United player. He was being restricted to five goals out of 18 starts. He actually missed the United short pre-season preparations last summer and was out for 2 months after the season had began.

And this was due to the operation he had on his shoulder following an injury. That was the first time the United number 10 would be go for a real break since becoming a professional footballer five years ago. 

We hope he comes back and prove his quality after the summer rest and a lot of hard work at the gym. Marcus Rashford is expected to be at the Tour.

Bruno Fernandes first real Tour as a Red

Bruno Fernandes since joining Manchester United have not went on a pre-season tour. He was still at Sporting club the last time United went on a Tour (that was in 2019). 

It's been three years now Fernandes has appeared for United in 126 times and he's scored up to 50 goals. He has established himself as one of the fans favorite. This coming Tour 2022 would be the first chance for our Portuguese midfielder to connect with Man United supporters all around the world.

Some past and present United players have admitted that the first time they could realise the true global size of Manchester United was when they "stepped off the plane and were greeted by pure bedlam!" That means Bruno and other recent signees should be ready to be overwhelmed.

Chance for Young Talents 

This tour would be a great opportunity for the young players to make their  mark.The tour is always a great medium for players to prove they are worth on the team. Many are also  taken along so they can gain experience.

There has been some excitement around the Man United youth players especially this period that they recently won the Youth Cup. Ten Hag would want to check out most of these young talents to see what they are up to.
