Manchester United Release Statement After Being Hit By COVID Outbreak Ahead Of Newcastle Game

Manchester United have been hit by a COVID-19 outbreak, but it is believed that their Premier League game against Newcastle on Sunday afternoon will still go ahead as planned.

It has been emerged that up to three coaches working with the first team are affected, according to The Mirror.

In a statement on the club's official website, United confirmed that Nicky Butt and Mark Dempsey, who both work in first-team development, will join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on the bench due to some of the coaching staff having to self isolate.

They also confirmed that the game against Newcastle United at Old Trafford will kick off at 19:00 GMT.
