Manchester United have cancelled their training plans in the Gulf region during next month's winter break. This is as a result of the security tensions rising in the Middle-East.

 

In January last year, Solskjaer took his squad to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and sent some of his players there again in November during an international break. United have also previously used the Aspire Academy in Qatar's capital Doha for a winter training camp.

 

However, due to a rise in tensions in the region after senior Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani was killed in a US airstrike in Baghdad and a Ukrainian International Airlines plane was accidentally shot down in Tehran, killing all 176 passengers.

 

Although Solkjaer still intends on taking the team for training, he intends to keep his team in Europe. "We were looking at the Middle East but that is definitely not going to happen," Solksjaer said. "We will stay in Europe."
