Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, says the club will not force on-loan Odion Ighalo and other players to return following the coronavirus pandemic if they do not feel it is safe to do so, Sky Sports has reported.
Solskjaer declaration is coming on the heel of Premier League’s tentative plan to resume in June and players returning to training later this month.
With Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero leading a list of players said to be concerned about the league’s Project Restart scheme, Solskjaer has weighed into the discussion insisting his United team will not be forced to play against their wishes.
“You wouldn’t hold anything against them. You need to get to know everyone and if a player is mentally ready to play. I don’t think we could force anyone.
“They’ve not raised too many concerns and we trust the experts who know if and when it’s safe to start again,” he told Sky Sports.
