Man Utd first train together after clear negative COVID-19 test

MANCHESTER UNITED players trained together for the first time in over two months after getting the all-clear from their coronavirus tests.

Red Devils stars last worked out at their Carrington complex on March 13 but are now back to business following a vote from Premier League clubs to approve a formal return to the training ground.

The agreement to move to “Stage One” of the training protocols will see all 20 top-flight squads beginning basic work from today.

United captain Harry Maguire was among the first arrivals at Carrington on Wednesday morning alongside Fred, Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic.

Academy prospects Angel Gomes, Mason Greenwood and Tahith Chong were also pictured after the club ordered the players to arrive at staggered times throughout the day to undergo sessions in small groups.

The likes of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo then arrived in the afternoon alongside a masked Sergio Romero.

It comes after the Argentine’s fellow keeper David De Gea was snapped earlier showing off his new lockdown look as he pulled into training with a long beard.

SunSport understands that there were three separate sessions being held today across the squad with the players given an arrival slot.

Training was set up over five pitches with one including a bleep test for the first 40 minutes to determine base fitness levels.

The coaches also set-up for some small games with five-a-side goals.

Last night it was revealed only six positive cases had emerged from 19 clubs, with Norwich’s results still to come, in a huge boost to Project Restart.
