Manchester United Players get their Daily Dose of Vitamin D

At a successful club like Manchester United, no stone is left unturned in preparing the players for action – and that even includes their sun tan.

A fascinating study into the methods of manager Sir Alex Ferguson by academics at the Harvard Business School in Boston has revealed that United had a Vitamin D machine installed for compensate for Manchester’s lack of natural sunlight.

Ferguson also gave players staggered one-week breaks during the winter months so they could replenish their Vitamin D.
