Ighalo removed from Man Utd team over coronavirus fears

Odion Ighalo is excluded from Manchester United’s squad, travelling to Spain for a training camp.

The Nigerian striker has been left out over fears that he could be denied entry back into the UK because of the coronavirus outbreak

Ighalo only arrived last week from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua on a six-month loan deal.

There are currently three cases of coronavirus in the UK.

United fly to Spain on Saturday for a warm-weather camp, but Ighalo will remain in Manchester, where he will undergo on a personal training and fitness program.

A club statement said: “The club can also confirm that, due to the current situation in China, it has been decided that new signing Odion Ighalo will not travel to Spain as it is not guaranteed that he’d clear UK immigration on return should border restrictions tighten on travelers who’ve been in China within the past 14 days.”
