Igahlo to miss Utd training camp

English Premier League

Manchester United have explained why Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo has been left out of the squad for this week's training camp despite being fit.

Ighalo joined the Red Devils on loan for the remainder of the season on deadline day last week from Chinese Super League outfit -

The Red Devils will have a mid-season training camp in Spain this week and while Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford miss out through injury, Ighalo's absence pertains to visa issues.

“Odion will stay in Manchester, because he arrived from China in the last 14 days,“ Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told the club's official website.

”Because of the situation in China, we're not sure if he'd be allowed back into England if he leaves the country again, so he's staying here working with a personal coach, individual programme and his family then can settle in England as well. That's a plus.

“Of course he might have liked to have come with the players and got to know them, but the risk [of potential border restrictions tightening], we don’t want to take that.
