Manchester United players bring Wags with them to training ahead of FA Cup final against Chelsea

Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Juan Mata were all accompanied by their stunning other halves on the drive to Carrington today.

Smalling is married to former Page 3 girl Sam Cooke and Jones tied the knot with long-term girlfriend Kaya Hall last June.

Kaya could well be joining the players in Russia this summer after Gareth Southgate included her husband in his 23-man England squad for the World Cup.

But Sam, who hid her face from cameras on the way into the training ground, is unlikely to go with Smalling not included.

Mata and Rojo also drove partners Evelina Kampf and Eugenia Lusardo into Carrington in a Mercedes each.

Jose Mourinho, who was chauffeur-driven to United's camp, will hope the extra support for his squad can inspire them to FA Cup glory against former club Chelsea on Saturday.

SunSport exclusively revealed the Old Trafford boss has striker Romelu Lukaku – pictured arriving at training in a taxi – at his disposal after he shuck off an ankle injury picked up against Arsenal on April 29.

The whole squad is looking forward to the final and the chance to win a fourth major trophy in three seasons.

United won the FA Cup in Louis van Gaal’s final game in charge before Mourinho added the League Cup and Europa League last season.

Another trophy on Saturday, added to their best league finish in five years where they were runners-up to Manchester City, will make it "a very good season" according to full-back Ashley Young.

The 32-year-old, who was also named in Southgate's England squad, said: “If we win at the weekend, and having finished second, it will be a very good campaign.

“But if you ask all the players and staff, winning the league is where we need to be at.

“That’s the disappointment but, overall, it’s been a good season and if we win the Cup it’s been a very good season.

“Of course there’s excitement. There is not anyone who is not excited. We’ve been there before and must prepare this week in the right way, which we will do.

“Everybody wants to be starting and I’m no different.

“I want to play in the final and obviously want success.

“There is no better feeling than when you win the FA Cup and walk up those stairs to pick up that trophy. Hopefully, we can do that.”
