Odion ighalo, with Nigeria - NEW CHINA / SIPA

Curious start to the adventure for Odion Ighalo at Manchester United. The Nigerian striker, loaned to the Red Devils this winter by the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua, has still not trained with his new teammates. According to The Times , he would be sidelined for fear of contamination from the coronavirus. Ighalo has been training at the National Taekwondo Center in Manchester since arriving in the North West of England earlier this month.

This precautionary measure is expected to last 14 days, a period of time equivalent to the incubation period, which will end this weekend. Enough for him to take part in the Manchester United game against Chelsea on Monday? Likely. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already guaranteed his presence in the group for this shock.
