CRISTIANO RONALDO has led his team-mates back to Manchester United for training after their Carrington complex reopened.
The Premier League team has been affected by a spate of coronavirus cases among players and staff.
That forced the training center to close – but CR7 and his teammates drove over to be allowed to cross the road by the boss Ralf Rangnick.
United have seen their last two matches, against Brentford and Brighton, postponed as the virus ravaged the squad.
But the striker Marcus Rashford provided a positive update ahead of their trip to Newcastle on Bank Holiday Monday.
Talk to club website, the 24-year-old England star said: “The players have trained and today we have brought all the remaining players back to training, only a few will practice tomorrow.
“So we’ve pretty much got the full squad back, which is a positive for the week.”
United reports 19 players and staff have tested positive for Covid-19.
The Red Devils did not disclose how many players were infected with the virus, and two matches were postponed.
But boss Rangnick could have a host of his stars back for the clash with Newcastle on Bank Holiday Monday.
Premier League teams got a timely boost after government drop Covid-19 self-isolation phase from ten days to seven.
That means a host of big names could return to the competition for the Gifting Day and Bank Holiday games.
Rangnick has beefed up his logistics staff at United by bringing in Scot Ewan Sharp as assistant coach and analyst.
The Reds interim coach had a vacancy after Kieran McKenna left to lead Ipswich last week.
And he quickly moved on to sign Sharp – with whom he had close ties with a number of clubs before that.
Most recently, he worked alongside Rangnick at Lokomotiv Moscow and previously knew him from the New York Red Bulls.
He was also on the backline of new United manager Chris Armas at Toronto FC in the MLS.
Sharp participated in training sessions on Wednesday.
