Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard have been photographed together with their friends before returning to pre-season training.
Lingard, 27, shared the photo on his official Instagram account. It shows team-mate Rashford standing next to him.
We already knew the pair were close friends but it looks like they went on a group holiday during their time off. Not the greatest idea during a global pandemic — it has to be said.
United’s Premier League opener is on September 19, against Crystal Palace, and Rashford will be looking to get off to a goalscoring start after struggling for form post-lockdown.

That said, Rashford had only come back from a serious injury. Had there been no lockdown there’s a chance he would have missed the end of the season.
On the other hand, Lingard has a lot to prove this season if he stays at United.
