Manchester United under-18s boss Kieran McKenna will take an under-17 squad to Slovakia for a mid-season training break, which will include a match against local opposition MSK Zilina next Tuesday.
McKenna revealed to ManUtd.com that the squad will spend 4 or 5 days in Eastern Europe.
“We’re travelling to Slovakia for a training camp. It’ll be fantastic to get some of the boys away during the season to spend some together. We’ll have four or five days out there. We can work on some things during the mini-break and come back to start a new phase of the season from there, running right through until Christmas.” – McKenna
“We’ll play a local side out there. I’ve done similar things before with previous clubs and it’s a great chance to get the boys away for a mental refresher. It’s a good chance to get to know them really well off the pitch and have a game against foreign opposition as well.” – McKenna
