Paul Pogba's disrupted interview
Interviews on the training ground or on he pitch prior to a game can always pose problems as team-mates take the opportunity to disrupt such features by aiming balls in that direction.
This might have been a problem for Paul Pogba as he spoke to MUFC TV this week, but as a ball was launched in his direction, he carried on speaking to the interviewer while calmly back-heeling the ball away.
He was unfazed and carried on answering the question as if nothing had happened.
Evra's language skills
Evra is regular star of social media, and even more so since he is a free agent having left West Ham United following a short stint at the London club last year.
He has plenty of time on his hands and is using it well, revealing that he is now on the way to learning an eighth language -- Chinese!
Evra took to Instagram to showcase his linguistic skills to the world, rounding off with his English catchphrase "I love this game".
Is he after a move to China?

Levante defeated Barcelona in the first leg of their Spanish Cup tie last night, much to the delight of their mascot.
Bleacher Report captured the moment as the Granotas (Frogs) went ahead in the first half, and their mascot showed its delight.
They were 2-0 up at half time, but a Philippe Coutinho penalty brought the defecit back to one goal, and Barça will still be favourites to progress after the second leg at the Camp Nou next week.
City put nine past Burton
Seeing as Manchester City's game against Burton Albion was over before it began, reporters and social media admins had to get creative with their coverage.
There were plenty of stats flying around about City breaking records, and it being one of Pep Guardiola's biggest ever victories, but some went down the more humorous route, with ESPN asking whether Burton would be able to turn it around in the second leg...
Soccer's biggest league
Die hard sports fans in North America will be familiar with this next feature.
A recent Tweet from Russian Football News highlighted the vast distances involved for teams traveling to away games in Russia’s second division.
English soccer accounts regularly post about 'big' away trips from the north to the south of the UK or vice versa, but these pale in comparison to some of the journeys undertaken on the world’s biggest continents.
We had a glimpse of this during the World Cup, but that tournament was based in just a small pocket of Russia - the biggest country in the world.
RFN placed all the teams in the Russian second division on a map of western Europe to illustrate the treks these teams have to go on each week.
