Manchester United Boss Jose Mourinho Praises LA 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Village at UCLA

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho praised the facilities and operations of LA 2024’s proposed Olympic and Paralympic Village.

Speaking at a press conference held earlier today at UCLA, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho praised the facilities and operations of LA 2024’s proposed Olympic and Paralympic Village.

The Red Devils have been using UCLA’s campus as the training base for the West Coast leg of their pre-season tour to the US, in preparation for the 2017-18 season. The squad is using the same existing world-class sports, medical, dining and leisure facilities that will be available to the Olympians and Paralympians of the world in the Village in 2024.

Asked why he keeps bringing his squads to UCLA for pre-season training, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said: "[At UCLA] we have everything. The facilities are very good. The organization is very good, because sometimes facilities are good but the organization is chaotic."

LA's Olympic weather and UCLA's main grass pitch and fitness centers provide ideal training conditions for elite athletes. The high-tech facility also has campus-wide Wi-Fi and eight different dining halls, serving a variety international cuisine tailored to fit any high-performance diet. The quality and quantity of sports training options on offer at UCLA mean LA 2024 can ensure every athlete will be able to train either at the Village or at their competition venue.

Manchester United’s players and 2024 Olympic and Paralympic athletes have been welcomed by staff at UCLA who currently serve over 16,000 residents from around the world every day. During the Games, their proven experience in hosting a diverse student body and elite-level international athletes will ensure that every athlete will have the best possible Games-time experience.

Manchester United’s time in the City of Angels will also feature a pre-season match at the StubHub Center, a proposed LA 2024 venue located in the South Bay Sports Park.
