Covid outbreak in Manchester United squad puts Brentford game in doubt
The Guardian says Tuesday’s Premier League match between Brentford and Manchester United has been placed in doubt after a number of Ralf Rangnick’s squad tested positive for Covid-19.
United won 1-0 at Norwich on Saturday, with a late penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo. Everyone who travelled to Carrow Road had tested negative in the last round of routine tests. However, on Sunday morning, a small number of positive lateral flow tests were found among the players and staff, who were all sent home. The rest of the squad trained outdoors and the schedule was adjusted, taking in individual and non-contact sessions.
It is understood the Premier League has been notified of the results by United and it is not clear if Tuesday night’s match at Brentford will be able to go ahead.
