He has as a result of this been given a personal trainer who would work seperately with him for safety reasons until the 14 days incubation period elapses.

Confirming the development, Manchester United coach, Ole Solskjaer said:

“Odion will stay in Manchester, because since he has come from China in the last 14 days, the news of the virus there means we’re not sure if he’s going to be allowed back into England if he leaves the country again.

“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].”
