Victor Lindelof and Paul Pogba wore club shirts of international team-mates that have tested positive for coronavirus
Paul Pogba was back wearing a Juventus shirt on Wednesday, but with good reason.
The Manchester United midfielder’s long-term future appears uncertain, with his former club Juve one of the teams heavily linked with the World Cup winner should he depart Old Trafford.
Pogba spent four seasons with the Serie A champions between 2012 and 2016 before returning to United for what was a world-record fee at the time.
In a video uploaded to his Instagram account on Wednesday, Pogba was seen training at home wearing a Juve shirt with Blaise Matuidi’s name and number on the back.
However, the Frenchman explained that he and United team-mate Victor Lindelof – who was spotted in Albin Ekdal’s Sampdoria jersey – were simply supporting their international team-mates after both Serie A players tested positive for coronavirus.
“New training camp is called… Quarantine PP Arena, open 24/7!” Pogba wrote on Instagram.
“Having fun working at home with my brother @victorlindelof.
“Supporting our friends @blaisematuidiofficiel and @albinekdal and all athletes and people around the world!
“Be strong, #StayAtHome and be safe!
“(I know the cheeky ones will talk about the Juventus jersey [but] I’m just supporting my friends … that’s all, nothing more).”
Matuidi replied to Pogba’s post by saying: “Thank you my brother this touched me love u.
“And glad to see you touch the ball.”
Pogba has not played for United since December 26 having undergone surgery on a right ankle injury in January.
He was due to return to team training on Tuesday but United cancelled their session after the United Kingdom government urged citizens to avoid unnecessary travel and social contact.
Ghana’s Premier League matches could be played behind closed doors
Ghana’s Premier League may not be allowed to have fans back inside stadiums SHOULD the Government give greenlight for Football activities to resume per proposal submitted by the GFA’S Medical Committee to the GFA.
And per Ghana- Kumasi Base Radio Station Oyerepa FM Sports report, Dr Adam Baba led committee have adviced the GFA as follows
The resumption should be gradual
-starting with the men premier league then the others(Division One,Women’s league etc) follow when convicted all is well.This is because if we take too much, it can overwhelm us
That all players, officials, coaches,referees and match commissioners undergo mandatory test*
-The FA must arrange for them to be tested at various laboratories.They were identified into High and low risk groups
-The High risk group comprised of referees, match commissioners and technical persons who have close contact with players.
A plan that could see all matches for the remainder of the season played in empty stadiums
-The only persons to be admitted will be the press to cover the games and most of the matches shown live on TV.
-Those that can’t be shown live should be shown immediately after the matches not to make supporters miss the game so much.
To observe social and physical distance as we enjoy the game of Football
Speaking to Oyerepa FM Sports, the Chairman of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Medical Committee Dr Adam Baba said.
”To cancel or continue will all depend on the dynamics of the pandemic.As the medical committe of the GFA, we were asked for a proposal on the best practices SHOULD the Government give the go ahead to resume Football activities and our advice was based on the records of the pandemic, the death and recovery rates and cases recorded.
All that we are doing will hinge around the Ghana Health Service’s final approval, the go ahead or could tell us to wait for a while”

Rashford edging closer to full fitness: I feel 10 times better now
He has been out since mid-January but Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford says he is edging closer to a return to training.
Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is in a “much better place” than a month ago as he nears a return to full fitness.
Rashford has been out since mid-January due to a back injury, with United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saying earlier this month the club would not rush his comeback.
The England international is making good progress, though, and suggests he will be ready to resume training once the squad are cleared to go back to work after the coronavirus pandemic.
“I feel much better,” Rashford told Sky Sports News. “I have a scan in another couple of days and that should solidify it, but I feel much better compared to two or three weeks ago.
“I feel 10 times better now. For me, now it’s just about getting ready to build back up to training and then playing games for the team.
“I’m in a much better place. I’m much happier than I was about a month ago, so things are looking positive.”
— Marcus Rashford (@MarcusRashford) March 26, 2020
Rashford says his recent rehabilitation has been carried out at home due to the restrictions put in place to control the impact of COVID-19.
“Everyone is just dealing with the circumstances as well as they can,” he added.
“I’ve just been in my house doing my gym work and recovery, reading books, watching Netflix and just doing what I can do to make the time pass further.
“There’s not really anything you can do that comes close to being in the changing room and being in the team, so I’m not trying to chase that high.
“I had to have time off anyway because of my injury, but I’m fortunate enough to have a bike in the gym downstairs. Not much in that sense has actually changed for me because I can still do my daily routine that I was doing.”
Rashford is also heading up a campaign for the FareShare charity, which aims to raise £100,000 to help supply food to children who usually have free school meals but are currently unable to access them.
“I didn’t know how high the numbers were of kids not eating at home other than school meals. That number kind of shocked me,” Rashford said.
“And then I remember speaking to a friend who was saying there was an opportunity where we can help these people and FareShare allowed us to make it work.
“I don’t think I’ve actually ever done something at such short notice before. I thought let’s try and get to £100,000 and right now we’re on £97,000.”
