English Premier League leaders Manchester United reached Doha on Monday morning for a four-day camp at the Aspire Zone. The squad flew out to Qatar on Sunday after their drawn game against Tottenham Hotspur. “Just landed in Qatar….zero sleep on the plane!! Eyes feeling puffy!! *sunglasses where r u*!!” tweeted veteran defender and former captain Rio Ferdinand. This is the English giants’ second camp at the zone as they had made use of its facilities in 2010. Coach Alex Ferguson is a big admirer of the zone. Midfielder Michael Carrick believes the club’s mid-season break in Qatar will be vital to the team’s quest for silverware for the remainder of the campaign. Carrick joked that the players are looking forward to escaping the snow and believes the trip will stand the players in good stead for the challenges that lie ahead. “I think it’ll be an important break for us,” he told MUTV. “We can get the sun cream out hopefully and get out on the beach and relax a bit! “It’s a busy season and there’re busy times ahead. It’s about recuperating and getting ready for the next game,” he said.
