Coronavirus: Ighalo To Miss Manchester United’s Training In Spain

Odion Ighalo has been dropped from attending Manchester United’s training camp in Spain this weekend over fear of coronavirus outbreak, BBC reports.
The Nigerian striker was left out of the squad over fears that he could be denied entry back into the UK because of the deadly coronavirus.
Ighalo only arrived last week from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua on a six-month loan deal.
There are currently three cases of coronavirus in the UK.
United fly to Spain on Saturday for a warm-weather camp, but Ighalo will remain in Manchester, where he will undergo on a personal training and fitness programme.
A club statement said: “The club can also confirm that, due to the current situation in China, it has been decided that new signing Odion Ighalo will not travel to Spain as it is not guaranteed that he’d clear UK immigration on return should border restrictions tighten on travellers who’ve been in China within the past 14 days.”
