Ighalo Not Allowed To Train With Manchester United Over Coronavirus Scare
Nigerian footballer, Odion Ighalo who made a historic loan move from China to English club side, Manchester United few days ago, will not travel to Spain for Manchester United’s winter training camp over coronavirus scare.
Ighalo who is currently in Manchester, will stay in England “on a personal training and fitness programme”. The English football club said “it is simply a precautionary measure as the situation continues to be monitored”.
The club’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also said; “Odion will stay in Manchester, because he arrived from China in the last 14 days. “Because of the situation in China, we’re not sure if he’d be allowed back into England if he leaves the country again.
So he’s staying here working with a personal coach, individual programme and his family then can settle in England as well. That’s a plus. “Of course he might have liked to have come with the players and got to know them, but the risk [of potential border restrictions tightening], we don’t want to take that.”
