The Corona worries at the English record champions Manchester United endanger the Premier League game of the Red Devils at Brentford FC.
The club of Ralf Rangnick announced that it is in talks with the league as to whether the match will take place on Tuesday (8:30 p.m.) as planned or whether it should be canceled out of consideration for the health of the players.
The team will not travel to London for the time being, it said. United also confirmed Sunday media reports that players and staff had tested positive for COVID-19. Names or the number of those affected were not mentioned.
The training was canceled and the training area was closed for 24 hours “to minimize the risk of further infections”. Those who tested positive would be in isolation as provided by the league protocol.
