In his latest pre-season tour diary, Rio Ferdinand has been revealing how the Manchester United are trying to relax during their time off.

David Moyes’ men are currently in Australia and are preparing for their friendly with the A League All Stars on Saturday morning in Sydney.

Ferdinand and some of the other players decided to take a stroll along Manly Beach, which is known for attracting lots of suffers.

The Manchester United players are not doing anything so strenuous as catching waves, a nice leisurely walk in the sand was enough for them.

Australia is known for its scorching sunshine but, as Ferdinand points out in the video, it is currently winter there and the weather is not so great.

Football may not be the most popular sport in Australia, but the presence of Manchester United stars attracts a crowd of autograph hunters.
