Ighalo Banned from Manchester United Training Base Over Coronavirus

MANCHESTER UNITED have banned Odion Ighalo from using their training grounds due to fears over Coronavirus.

Ighalo, who was signed by Manchester United on loan from Chinese Super League (CSL) side Shanghai Shenhua is being made to train away from the AON Complex at Carrington, while he is in the recommended 14-day incubation period.

The virus originated at Wuhan in China, and although Ighalo did not arrive in the UK from Wuhan, United have taken the above precaution to steer clear of any trouble.

The report further adds that the Nigerian forward will continue working with Manchester-based performance coach Wayne Richardson at the GB Taekwondo Centre in Manchester until Friday, when he will join up with the Red Devils’ squad for the first time since his signing in January.

Meanwhile, the Coronavirus has already claimed more than 1,100 lives and there were fears that travelers from China might have issues entering and leaving the UK – which is why United decided not to take any risk with the 30-year-old.
