Manchester United are targeting to return to training on April 10 after the season was further postponed until April 30.
The Premier League is just one of the big leagues that have been canceled due to the coronavirus epidemic and according to reports from the UK, managers of the twenty teams are putting things in place to keep their players fit in readiness of the league resumption.
United was one of the teams that allowed its players to continue training on their grounds but that was canceled due to the severe effect of the virus with players urged to train from home.
Days after the league was suspended, Carrington’s closure access to first-team training was limited to essential staff and players only.
It is reported that visitors were asked to complete questionnaires regarding recent travel and potential exposure to coronavirus.
The notice for the first team to stay home was realized when United had instructed players not to pose for selfies with fans or sign autographs for the foreseeable future but those new rules were immediately put to the test when they flew out to Austria for their Europa League round of 16 tie with LASK earlier this month.
Upon landing they were immediately greeted by autograph-hunting supporters, with players obliging to requests; a move that forced United to reconsider their stance in training.
United was slated to take on Tottenham Hotspur before the break and was highly on form after failing to lose a match in their past eight games.
