Man Utd stars back in training after Covid outbreak and Lindelof looks to have finished Xmas shopping with Amazon boxes

12/23/2021

MANCHESTER UNITED are back in numbers as their squad returned to training after their recent Covid outbreak.

The Premier League side had been hit by a spate of coronavirus cases among players and staff.



That forced the training centre to be closed – but Cristiano Ronaldo, 36, and his team-mates were recently pictured back in Carrington.

Defenders Harry Maguire, 28, and Victor Lindelof, 27, were among United stars to have been pictured driving into the training ground.

And it looked as though Lindelof had been bust Christmas shopping, with what appeared to be Amazon boxes in the back of his car.

United saw their last two games, against Brentford and Brighton, postponed as the virus ravaged the squad.

But striker Marcus Rashford provided a positive update ahead of their Bank Holiday Monday trip to Newcastle.

Speaking to the club website, Rashford, 24, said: "The lads have been training and today we brought all the rest of the lads back to training, there are only a couple left that will be coming in tomorrow.

“So, we’ve pretty much got the full squad back, which is a positive going into the week.”

United reported 19 players and staff had tested positive for Covid-19.

The Red Devils did not disclose how many players were hit with the virus, and saw two games postponed.

But boss Ralf Rangnick could have a host of his stars back for the clash against Newcastle on Bank Holiday Monday.

Rangnick has also strengthened his backroom staff at United by bringing in Scot Ewan Sharp as an assistant coach and analyst.

The Red Devils interim boss had a vacancy after Kieran McKenna left to take charge of Ipswich last week.
