Manchester United’s players have been trying to reignite their creative spark in a new promotional video for sponsors Aeroflot.
The two minute video challenges some of the first team to paint a plane, judged by United’s vice-captain Darren Fletcher.
Angel di Maria, Ashley Young, Anderson and David de Gea are among those to feature in the competition, but it was new boy Ander Herrera who stormed to victory.
The Spanish playmaker has recently been linked with an exit from the club following rumours Louis van Gaal is looking at alternative options in January.
Fletcher awarded Michael Carrick and Di Maria with second and third place respectively, he describing the holding midfielder’s painting as a “poor man’s version” of Herrera’s attempt. However some of the players struggled to make an impression with the paintbrush.
- Manchester United expect Radamel Falcao to return against Arsenal
- Ander Herrera has a huge role to play at Manchester United
- David de Gea is Manchester United's biggest absentee
Unfortunately Anderson’s artistic skills aren’t much better then his form on the pitch at the moment with a very poor effort. Meanwhile Jesse Lingard’s and James Wilson’s attempts looked more like birds of prey than any type of aircraft.
Despite the wealth of attacking talent at Louis van Gaal’s disposal, the Red Devils have struggled to pose much of a threat in recent matches against Crystal Palace, Manchester City and Chelsea.
United will be hoping this session inspires some more creative flair ahead of the clash with fierce rivals Arsenal on Saturday.
