Guillermo Varela: Happy with trial stint at Manchester United

The 20-year-old Penarol full-back joined the Red Devils earlier this month to spend a few weeks training with the Premier League champions.

"I have trained with the first-team," Varela, who departed England late last week, told Tirando Paredes.

"I am very happy and I was received very well.

"It was a surprise to get the chance to test with Manchester United. I'm glad and happy, and grateful to Penarol who allowed me to travel.

"I was treated so well and Cicharito [Javier Hernandez] helped me a lot. The work outs were short but very demanding."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
