Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his players should ask their wives and girlfriends to help with football drills so they can keep sharp during isolation.
The squad have been given individual training programmes while United’s Carrington training base remains closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
And Solskjaer has called on the players’ partners to help out while the lockdown continues.
“The players have got individual programmes and they’ve got their own diets, of course, and this period could be used to work on something special, something specific for them and their roles and tasks,” Solskjaer told United’s official website.
“I’ve been in the garden, with the kids, working on finishing and the strikers should be working on finishing or their movement.
“Most of the players have got good facilities and decent gardens so, hopefully, their wives and girlfriends will be able to put some passes and crosses in.”
Solskjaer and his coaching staff have been keeping in close contact with the players since the Premier League was suspended two weeks ago.
The Red Devils remain committed to playing the current campaign to a conclusion but there is no indication yet about when football might be able to resume.
