12 players from Man United have food poisoning
According to the UK Sun, Manchester United players who traveled to Moldova to play FC Sheriff in the Europa League last Thursday returned home sick.
On their first visit to the Eastern European nation, United won 2-0.
Erik ten Hag’s team overcame their competitive loss to Real Sociedad thanks to goals from Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo in the first half.
It has since come to light, though, that at least 12 members of the squad started to feel unwell when they got back on Friday morning.
After the game, United took a private jet back to the UK, but they were still sick. It is thought that the illness may have been brought on by something they ate or by the plane itself.
Some players didn’t show up for the Friday recovery training session at Carrington, and some weren’t well enough to show up the following day.
Fortunately for Ten Hag, the squad’s Sunday home game against Leeds United was postponed, so he didn’t have to prepare the team.
Due to a shortage of police officers before the Queen’s formal burial on Monday at Westminster Abbey, the game had to be postponed.
