A day 'off' as punishment for Man U

Posted By: Staff

London, Mar 17: Manchester United players were given a day off from training as 'punishment' for their 4-1 mauling by Liverpool. Boss Alex Ferguson decided to stick to his original plan to use Sunday, Mar 15 as a recovery day after their hectic recent schedule.

A United insider revealed: "It's been three games a week almost since they got back from the World Club Cup in Japan, so with a free week ahead of Fulham it was decided a day's rest would be better.

"The players don't need telling again how much the boss hurts."
