Manchester United are in Dubai, undertaking some warm-weather training during the gap between Premier League fixtures.

On the one hand, they'll be sorry not to be participating in the FA Cup.

On the other, they got to meet Diego Maradona.

A flurry of pictures from the team's players appeared on social media on Monday morning, starting with £37 million signing Juan Mata:

Señoras y señores, la mejor zurda de la historia! Ladies and gentleman, the best left foot ever! EL DIEGO. #Maradona

— Juan Mata García (@juanmata8) February 17, 2014

Others duly followed, including Rio Ferdinand and David de Gea:

Great to be with the best number 10!! "El Pelusa"

— David De Gea (@D_DeGea) February 17, 2014
