Covid disruption has now hit Manchester United too

Latest Covid Flare Up, With More And More Disruption

Manchester’s Premier League rivals Tottenham have needed to delay three games as well because of a flare-up of Covid-19 in the Spurs crew.

Ralf Rangnick was expected to take charge of training the squad on Sunday yet the flare-up prevented it from happening as arranged.

All things considered, the side changed plans, allowing instead individual non-contact outside training, with the people who tried positive sent home ahead of time.

On Saturday, Championship high-flyers West Brom were hit by a significant Covid-19 flare-up with four players testing positive before their game with Reading.

This is not a new event that Manchester United have been disrupted affected by the infection, with Dean Henderson and Jesse Lingard both testing positive during the early part of the season.

The profoundly infectious Omicron variation is setting back advancements made in the last few weeks, and threatens to wreck games for the remainder of the year, with practically the entire of the 2020-21 season played without supporters. Seemingly, there is no end to Covid disruption, much to the dismay of Football fans across the UK.

From Monday, fans should demonstrate they have been double vaccinated or have a negative result to be permitted into venues with a limit of more than 4,000. However, with a potential for a ‘Plan C‘, further issues may yet surface that affect enjoyment of the World Sport.
