Manchester United to train as normal despite COVID-19 outbreak

Manchester United will continue to train as normal whilst Premier League is suspended due to the coronavirus, according to reports.

The Mirror claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and United’s players plan to follow their daily training schedule regardless of games being postponed.

If true, we think this is ridiculous but how do other teams tend to prepare for the matches scheduled in three weeks time (which realistically won’t go ahead either)?

The Premier League is suspended until April 4th at least due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

It appeared as though this weekend’s games would go ahead, although news that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta and Chelsea player Callum Hudson-Odoi had tested positive for coronavirus forced the governing bodies of professional football in England to take immediate action.

Football is nothing without fans and games shouldn’t be taking place behind closed doors.

And, even if games are played behind closed doors, there’s still a considerable amount of people involved on matchday.

It’s probably not wise for Solskjaer and the players to be training right now.

Moreover, the Mirror report that United are yet to decide on whether or not they will arrange private games at the club’s training ground.

A definite no no for us…
