Rangnick provides Covid-19 update ahead of Newcastle clash


Manchester United interim boss Rangnick is hopeful he will have a full squad when his side takes on Newcastle United on Monday.

United’s two matches against Brentford and Brighton were postponed due to the spread of coronavirus. Ahead of Monday’s clash with Newcastle United, Rangnick hopes to have a full squad to pick from after the Red Devils squad resumed training on Tuesday.

“As you know, we had last week, the last training session on Thursday,” said Rangnick.

“From there we had eight fewer players, three goalkeepers and then we closed the training ground for four days in order to break the chain.”

“Today was the third day of training this week. We trained on Tuesday, Wednesday and today and we have 25 outfield players, apart from Paul Pogba, he’s the only one missing out.”

“Everyone else is on board and the development of the last week is extremely positive. As far as I could see today in training, they’re all in good shape, they did their homework, had their schedule to train at home and they stick to that schedule and that programme.”

“I can say most of them, if not all of them, might be available, but I have to make some difficult decisions about who will be in the squad and the starting line-up.”

“We will train tomorrow, there will be a day off on Christmas Day and then we have the last training session on Sunday and fly to Newcastle on Sunday evening.”

The Red Devils will miss the services of Paul Pogba who is on the sidelines after picking up a foot injury while on international duty.
