Solskjaer in touch with Man United stars during virus lockdown
MANCHESTER: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keeping in touch with his Manchester United stars as he deals with the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus.
The Premier League has been postponed until at least April 30 because of the pandemic and it is feared the season will be delayed again when English football’s stakeholders meet to discuss the crisis on Friday.
During the unsettling virus lockdown in Britain, United manager Solskjaer has been unable to train his squad in person.
But he has been in constant contact with players and staff on the phone in a bid to ensure they are ready, if and when matches can resume.
“Of course, I’m used to seeing them every day for hours and hours, so it’s different,” Solskjaer told United’s website on Tuesday.
“I just keep in touch with them on WhatsApp groups and messages, and we plan for whenever we get back and what kind of sessions for when we do start. – AFP
