The players were in relaxed and mischievous mood at Carrington today.

One of the first players in was Jo, looking for all the world as though he'd just stepped off Copacobana Beach in Rio and every inch a rap star from L.A. You can almost hearing him singing "Let the sunshine, let the sunshine, baby..." from here.
