Odion Ighalo Banned From Man United Training Base

Manchester United have banned former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo from the club's training ground due to fears over Coronavirus.

According to the Mirror, the Nigerian, who is on loan from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, is being made to train away from the AON Complex at Carrington while he is in the 14-day incubation period.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have taken the precaution despite the fact that Ighalo did not arrive in the UK from Wuhan, where the virus originated.

Ighalo will continue working with Manchester-based performance coach Wayne Richardson at the GB Taekwondo Centre in Manchester until Friday when he'll join up with the squad for the first time.

On Ighalo’s absence, United boss said: ‘’Odion will stay in Manchester because since he has come from China in the last 14 days, the news of the virus there means we're not sure if he's going to be allowed back into England if he leaves the country again.

‘’So he's staying here working with a personal coach on an individual programme and his family then can settle in England as well. That's a plus.’’
