Manchester United have been hit with a coronavirus outbreak ahead of the Red Devils’ clash with Newcastle on Sunday. United’s three staff members have tested positive for COVID19.
However, it was revealed that the game will go ahead as planned and the coaches involved were reportedly absent for the Europa League 4-0 win over Real Sociedad.
United have released an official statement on the matter, saying: “Nicky Butt and Mark Dempsey will join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the bench this evening due to some of the coaching staff having to self isolate.
“The home Premier League game against Newcastle United at Old Trafford will kick off at 19:00 GMT.”
