Picture: World class sportsman spotted at Manchester United training

Jose Mourinho was putting his manchester United players through their paces today, getting them ready and raring to go for the Europa League game against Feyenoord tomorrow evening. The lads were given a surprise visit to the training ground by British boxing hero, Anthony Crolla.

‘Million Dolla Crolla’ as he is nicknamed, is from Manchester and is an absolutely huge United fan. He’s an avid match goer and is often pictured in the away end of various Manchester United matches.

The 29-year-old was invited to watch his heroes train this afternoon, and the Lightweight champion of the world seemed to love the experience as he got to chat with the players who he watches just like every other fan.

Hopefully, Crolla can win his unification fight against a very tough opponent in Jorge Linares on September 24th, and really send out a message to the rest of the lightweight division around the globe.

Check out the photo of Crolla with the boys here:

And afterwards, the boxing champ shared a little joke with Ashley Young!
