ABU DHABI: As part of an ongoing effort to modernise its coaching programme, the Manchester United Soccer School in Abu Dhabi is to introduce a new set of modules for its next intake of students.

Among the new courses to be included this year will be ‘Sloppy Defending From Corners’ and ‘Accepting Defeat With Humility’.

“All our kids come here to learn how to play Manchester United’s unique brand of football, so it’s important that our training programme is always changing to reflect what’s going on at Old Trafford,” explained head coach Ronny McCarrick.

According to McCarrick, the latest curriculum update will also see several modules dropped from the programme.

“After careful consideration and consultation with the coaching staff in Manchester, we’ve decided to postpone our ‘Advanced Sense Of Smug Superiority’ course,” he added.

The news comes just days after it was revealed that the Manchester United Soccer School in Dubai was to be renamed the Bayern Munich Soccer School after a vote among students.

    Please e-mail PAE if you want to play for United and can live on 300K GBP per week.

    It might be a small pay cut but you will see rain daily for 12 months a year.
    Yours sincerely

    Stop making fun of the team I supported since last year.

    If David Moye’s father wore a condom, United would not be in the problem that they are.
