Manchester United’s game against Brentford on Tuesday is in jeopardy after reports emerged that the team had been hit by Covid-19 infections.
The reports were given by the Athletic who noted that players and staff members of the club recently returned positive Covid-19 test results with manager Ralf Rangnik forced to postpone the club’s Sunday session.
United were last in action on Saturday evening against Norwich City in what was the German second game in charge and while they won courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty, it is understood that those affected had been sent home and will now be required to self isolate for 10 days.
🚨 Man Utd couldn’t train as normal today due to small number of player/staff #COVID19 cases. All negative for Norwich but some positive LFTs this morning sent home – others worked non-contact outdoors. Status of Brentford game unclear @TheAthleticUK #MUFC https://t.co/tJJweEZbUc
