For some footballers, away trips can often be just as exciting as home matches.
The chance to get a change of scenery, play at a new stadium is also a good opportunity to bond with your teammates during the journey and, providing the game is far enough away, at the hotel.
But if you have to share a room with someone you don't like it can become a nightmare.
So when Ander Herrera was asked which of his Manchester United teammates he does not like sharing a room with, not many would have predicted his response.
Man United's Spanish contingent of Juan Mata, David de Gea and Herrera are all good friends and are often spotted hanging around together away from the pitch as much as on it.
Therefore, it is surprising to learn that of all the potential players Herrera wouldn't like to stay with, he chose one of his closest friends.
In a video which you can see below, the 27-year-old revealed that being stuck with De Gea would represent drawing the short straw.
Jokingly, Herrera mocked the goalkeeper's dress sense and taste in music as the main reasons behind his choice.
"He's (De Gea) always singing. He's always playing horrible music," Herrera told Unscripted.
"He likes to play very very old music from Spain. Sometimes I tell him he looks like my grandad.
"That's why I try to be as far away as possible when he's playing music. But I have to say honestly that we are very good friends but I cannot share a room with him."
Herrera started United's opening league game of the season against Bournemouth, however, Paul Pogba's arrival has forced him down the pecking order ever since.
But with Marouane Fellaini picking up a back injury last week against Hull, there is every chance Jose Mourinho will hand the Spaniard his starting berth back for the Manchester derby on September 10.
