'WAGS should help train during lockdown'

English Premier League

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he's hopeful his Manchester United players wives and girlfriends can put in some 'passes and crosses' during isolation.

The United squad have been given individual training programmes while United's Carrington training base remains closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

And speaking to United's official website, Solskjaer has called on the players' partners to help out while the lockdown continues.

"The players have got individual programmes and they've got their own diets, of course, and this period could be used to work on something special, something specific for them and their roles and tasks," he said.

"I've been in the garden, with the kids, working on finishing and the strikers should be working on finishing or their movement.

"Most of the players have got good facilities and decent gardens so, hopefully, their wives and girlfriends will be able to put some passes and crosses in."

The Red Devils were on an 11-game unbeaten run before the Premier League season was suspended last month.
