Manchester United’s game at Brentford on Tuesday night has been called off following a Covid outbreak in their squad.
The Premier League Board made the decision after United requested a postponement amid concerns over the spread of the Omicron variant.
The club closed down first-team operations at their Carrington headquarters for 24 hours and cancelled training on Monday to try and limit the risk of further infections after a number of players and staff tested positive on Sunday.
A Premier League statement read: ‘The Premier League Board has decided to postpone Brentford FC’s home fixture against Manchester United, due to be played tomorrow.
‘The decision was taken following guidance from medical advisers due to the exceptional circumstances of an ongoing Covid-19 outbreak within Manchester United’s squad.
‘First-team operations at the club’s Carrington Training Complex were closed down today to help control the outbreak and minimise the risk of further infection among players and staff.
‘The League wishes a quick recovery to those players and staff with COVID-19. The postponed fixture will be rearranged in due course.’
United also issued a statement, saying: ‘Following PCR confirmation of positive LFT Covid-19 tests among the first-team staff and players, the outbreak requires ongoing surveillance.
‘Given cancellation of training and disruption to the squad, and with the health of players and staff the priority, the club requested the match to be rearranged. The Premier League Board took the decision to postpone based on guidance from medical advisors.
‘Manchester United regrets the inconvenience caused to Brentford FC and to the fans of both clubs by Covid-19.’
