A report has emerged of some undesired circumstances emanating from Old Trafford.
Manchester United players and staff are believed to have suffered food poisoning with up to 12 members of the Old Trafford camp feeling unwell.
The unpalatable news came after United’s 2-0 victory at Moldovan side FC Sheriff in their second Europa League fixture on Thursday and has since seen a couple of players miss training as a result.
However, Erik ten Hag and his side are lucky as they are not back in action until October 2 when they will be embarking on a short trip to face their Manchester neighbours City after the international break.
Meanwhile, it is understood that the players affected have been allowed to join up with their countries despite the issue.
National Daily learned from the report by The Sun that some in the United camp began to feel unwell on Friday, and the club are attempting to work out if they picked up the suspected food poisoning in Moldova or on the plane on their way back to Manchester.
United’s win in Moldova saw them move up to second in Group E following their opening defeat to Real Sociedad.
The Red Devils’ victory in Moldova saw Cristiano Ronaldo score his first-ever Europa League goal after Jadon Sancho has given the Old Trafford club a lead earlier.
United’s boss Ten Hag reacting to Ronaldo’s goal said after the game: ‘Ronaldo needed that goal. ‘Many times he came close [in the season so far], but he wanted that so much.
‘We are happy for him and the team wanted to bring him a goal. You know that Cristiano will score a penalty.
‘He’s really close, when he gets more fitness he will score more. He’s totally committed to this project, totally involved, he also has connections that are coming around him and he is constructing connections so I’m happy with that.’
