Sometimes you need a tactical potassium infusion
Manchester United struggled to put away Rostov in the Europa League round of 16 and in the 73rd minute, Jose Mourinho figured out what the problem was: Marcos Rojo’s potassium deficiency. So to give his defender the boost he needed, Mourinho peeled a banana, handed it off to Ashley Young, when then gave it to Rojo.
Rojo gobbled up his mid-game snack, which was a major improvement on his usual diet of burnt toast.
The banana must have helped, because Man United were able to hold off Rostov and advance on a 2–1 aggregate score.
