Solskjaer planned military-style training for Man Utd before coronavirus outbreak
According to a report by The Metro (h/t The Mirror), Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had planned a gruelling military-style training regimen for the squad prior to the season getting suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Since the new year began, United started showing signs of improvement and even more so after Bruno Fernandes joined the club.
There has been a marked improvement in our performances on the whole and just when things looked positive, the deadly virus brought the world to an abrupt halt.
With UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announcing that the country would be going into lockdown to prevent coronavirus from spreading, it remains to be seen when we can resume the season.
At a time when games were still being played behind closed doors – like our Europa League encounter against LASK – Solskjaer had devised this plan to ensure the fitness of the players, claims the report.
However, with an indefinite break, it remains to be seen how things progress from here on.
