Odion Ighalo 'Banned From Man United Training Base' Over Coronavirus Fears

Manchester United have banned new signing Odion Ighalo from the club's training ground due to fears over Coronavirus.
The striker, on loan from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenua is being made to train away from the AON Complex at Carrington while he is in the 14-day incubation period, according to the Mirror.

United have taken the precaution despite the fact that Ighalo did not arrive in the UK from Wuhan, where the virus originated.

The Nigerian 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.

Coronavirus has already claimed more than 1,100 lives and concerns over border restrictions meant Ighalo did not join United for their warm weather training in Marbella.

There were fears that travellers from China might have issues entering and leaving the country so United decided not to take the risk.
