Manchester United’s rondo training exercises have been criticised on Twitter after a video emerged of Edinson Cavani and his team-mates in action.
The Red Devils side trained on Monday ahead of Tuesday’s clash in the Champions League against PSG.
And one video caught plenty of people’s eye in particular, of some of the United squad passing around in a circle with defenders in the middle trying to cut the ball out - known as a rondo.
The players were unable to string together too many passes in the clip, leading to some quarters of Twitter to share their damning opinion.
One wrote: “Man United Rondo's are the worst in world football.”
“Hahahaah pass count: 2 or 3 hahahahhaah,” a second laughed.
“What was that?” asked a third. “Kylian and Neymar plz don't embarrass us.”
However, others explained that the drill was different from a more commonly seen rondo as it was much closer in to raise the intensity
One explained: “Those are high intensity rondos not pre-warm up, players are closer, less space, more precise passing and you have to actually go for the ball."
“The randos you are thinking of is the big circle with 17 players and two in the middle,” while a second added. “This is a small square that is difficult to do many passes. It is designed to almost be impossible to do more than 10-15 passes.”
Harry Maguire and Edinson Cavani were reportedly missing from Manchester United’s travelling party ahead of their Champions League opener against Paris Saint-Germain.
The pair were not seen arriving at Manchester Airport on Monday afternoon, according to the MEN.
Cavani began training with the rest of the squad on Sunday at United’s Carrington training centre after completing his time in isolation.
Meanwhile, United skipper Maguire was a doubt for the 4-1 win over Newcastle, but played the full 90 minutes, and even got on the scoresheet after putting in a much more assured performance than previous weeks.
