Man Utd stars report for training despite Premier League being suspended

Manchester United players attended training this morning, just hours after beating LASK 5-0 in the Europa League.

The Red Devils arrived at Carrington despite the Premier League being suspended until at least April 4 due the the coronavirus outbreak.

Odion Ighalo was wearing a mask as he arrived while Scott McTominay had a scarf pulled up over the lower half of his face.

Bruno Fernandes was also present while Paul Pogba arrived in the back of a large vehicle. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and midfielder Fred were also seen.
