Coronavirus: Man United Pencil In Date For Players’ Return To Full Training

Amuda Segun




Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told his players to return to training next month in time for the resumption of the current football season which has been on hold for the better part of the last two weeks.

Football was suspended across all competitions at home and abroad as a result of the Coronavirus which has taken a lot of lives.

The United Kingdom were not left out of the Coronavirus pandemonium.

The Premier League had to postpone the remaining matches for this season after Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta tested positive for the dreaded Coronavirus shortly before the Gunners’ away game at Brighton and Hove Albion scheduled for the Amex Stadium earlier this month.

Premier League matches were initially suspended until the fourth of April before another meeting of the 20 top flight clubs took place last week. At the end of that meeting, league games were postponed till April 30 at the earliest.

Solskjaer and his Manchester United players had continued their normal training until last week when the second suspension of matches was confirmed by the Premier League. The Manchester United players were given different training regimes before they were sent home.

Manchester United players won’t resume training until April 10 which is some 20 days before the Premier League resumes. Solskjaer met with his assistants to map out the training regimes for the players before the AON training complex was shut last week.

Manchester United assistant managers Mike Phelan, Kieran McKenna and Michael Carrick all met with Solskjaer to discuss the way forward for training.

By the time the team returns for training, star player Paul Pogba is expected to have fully recovered from the ankle surgery he had at the start of January to deal with an ankle problem. The Frenchman would be hoping to prove his fitness upon the club’s return to training.
