Manchester United cancelled their training session on Tuesday after an advice from the UK government amid the coronavirus crisis.


The Red Devils, who had the weekend off after their Premier League match against Tottenham on Sunday was postponed, were due to return to United's Carrington training base on today.


However, the Old Trafford club changed their plans after UK prime minister Boris Johnson told people on Monday to prevent all unnecessary travel and social contact.


France international Paul Pogba was due to be back in first-team training today, his first since having a surgery on his right ankle back in January.




The midfielder has been undergoing personal training with Man United coach Michael Carrick in a quest to recover his fitness.


The coronavirus pandemic has brought a complete halt to Premier League football as it was suspended last week until at least April 4 following the news that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had contracted the virus.


United's next scheduled match is the trip to Brighton and Hove Albion in 18 days' time.
