Man United coaches in isolation ahead of Newcastle match

Nicky Butt and Mark Dempsey will be on the Man United bench today with other first-team coaches having to self-isolate, the club has confirmed.

Butt, a long-time team-mate of Solskjaer’s at Old Trafford during their playing days, is the club’s head of development.

Former United player Dempsey returned to the club in 2018 as part of Solskjaer’s staff, having previously worked with the Norwegian at Molde, and is now primarily working with the academy set-up.

The individuals in self-isolation are not being identified due to the privacy of medical information.

It is understood there are no concerns that any players will need to isolate and Sunday’s fixture, scheduled to kick off at 10pm (EAT) at Old Trafford, will go ahead.
