Leicester City Flew Home on 14-Minute Flight After Man Utd Defeat

Leicester City Flew Home on 14-Minute Flight After Man Utd Defeat

Leicester City were beaten at Manchester United yesterday but they didn’t lose too much energy on the journey home – because it lasted just a mere 14 minutes.

The Foxes put up an early resistance at Old Trafford on Saturday evening but eventually succumb to goals from Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini, as Jose Mourinho’s impressive-looking Red Devils made it three wins from their opening three Premier League matches.

And, according to the Sun, the Leicester players were given the royal treatment by the club’s wealthy owners – who paid for a chartered flight to and from Midlands airport, rather than braving a 125-mile journey down the M6, or a two-hour train ride.

God only knows what it cost to hire, fuel and staff a plane for a journey less than 15 minutes – but what do you think of the decision?

Should the club’s owners be commended for giving their squad every chance to get a result, or criticised for wasting so much money?
