New Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho poses ahead of the press conference

Jose Mourinho has been putting his Manchester United players through their paces.

Manchester United’s players have been photographed in training for the first time since Jose Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal as the club’s manager.

There were obviously some notable absences following Euro 2016, but two new signings were there in the form of Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, as well as 18-year-old centre-back Axel Tuanzebe who is being tipped as the next breakout youngster at Old Trafford.

Juan Mata, Memphis Depay and Daley Blind were also on the pitch, and all three will no doubt be keen to prove to Mourinho that they can play a significant role on the field next season, while the most exciting sight was Luke Shaw back in action after his horrific leg break all the way back in September.

The likes of Chris Smalling, Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David de Gea will return over the next few weeks, but it is those already in training who will have an early chance to impress when United taken on Wigan Athletic in a pre-season friendly this weekend.
