Nigerian forward and recent Manchester United signing, Odion Ighalo has been barred from the team’s training ground over fears of the deadly coronavirus.
Ighalo had come from his Chinese club, Shanghai Shenhua to the UK to sign and accept the offer.
According to reports, the Nigerian was asked to stay away from the United’s AON Training Complex for health and safety issues.

So he’s staying here working with a personal coach on an individual programme and his family then can settle in England as well. That’s a plus.
Of course, he might have liked to have come with the players and got to know them, but we don’t want to take that risk [of potential border restrictions tightening].”
Ighalo has since been training with a personal trainer at a given location in Manchester.
