Michael Carrick has provided the first player-based perspective into life as a Manchester United footballer under new manager Jose Mourinho, saying that it's been a mixture of hard work and fun.
Manchester United will take on Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium on Saturday, July 16 with kick-off at 1:30 BST.
Despite his short time at the club, Mourinho has already made a series of summer signings, with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan both pushing for a start this weekend.
Having had disappointing experiences with David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, Woodward was present for what he will hope is the beginning of a bright new chapter.
Will Keane and Andreas Pereira got the goals as Mourinho got off to a winning start with a 2-0 win away to Wigan today.
Wigan enter the fray this week looking to get one other their Lancashire neighbours, and Jose Mourinho who makes his match debut as Man United boss. Luke Shaw is handed a start, while Tim Fosu-Mensah looks to be slotting in at right-back. However the recent twitter photo shows Mata enjoying the training for pre-season tour with Manchester United and the Spaniard is likely to stay back at Old Trafford.
Mkhitaryan was involved in yet another United attack a few minutes later when he picked out Memphis Depay in the box, however the Dutch winger stabbed his effort wide of the mark.
That proved to be the final opening of the half as the sides went into the halftime break goalless.
