Nigeria’s Ighalo asked to stay away from Man Utd training ground

The Nigerian international striker Odion Ighalo has been asked to stay away from the training ground of Manchester United and has been training at GB Taekwondo Centre in Manchester since teaming up with the Red Devils.

Manchester United asked the 30-year-old striker, who completed a stunning loan move from the Chinese Super League side, Shanghai Shenhua, on transfer deadline day to stay away from the AON training complex due to the fear of coronavirus.

The former Watford striker has been training at GB Taekwondo Centre since his arrival and was not part of the Red Devils’ squad that travelled to Marbella in Spain.

The Mirror reported that the striker was instructed to train separately away from the Red Devils’ training ground for health and safety concerns as he completes his 14-day incubation period. The forward will, however, be part of Manchester United’s squad to take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Monday.
