Manchester United's latest signing Odion Ighodalo is yet to resume training with the rest of the players since his arrival from China. This is due to the potential risk of the Coronavirus (also known as Covid 19). The 30-year-old was also not selected to go for winter break training with the rest of the team for fear of difficulty in returning.
Nevertheless, he is expected to travel with the squad for Monday's game against Chelsea. According to BBC Sport, Ighalo as has been training with support from the club using a personalised fitness programme to get him ready for the Chelsea Premier League game. This has been done at the National Taekwondo Centre, close to the Etihad Stadium and where he has been staying since his arrival in England 11 days ago.
The current medical advice is that travellers coming into the UK from specific countries, including China, quarantine themselves for 14 days. The death toll in China from the virus is now more than 1,350, with almost 60,000 infections in total. Numerous sporting events have been cancelled in China and the Far East, including the Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix.
