The Manchester United coach has revealed when the football is expected to resume at the club and it could be sooner than first thought.

The unprecedented situation around the world has thrown life as we know it completely out of the window. Things are changing rapidly. The times are frightening and equally challenging for all of us. For avid football fans, even their beloved Manchester United has often been undermined from their thoughts by the pressing situation which surrounds all of us.

Football at times like this falls by the wayside. It’s no longer as important. Survival and safety becomes paramount.

Yet for some many of us, football also offers a way to escape our reality. It is the thing which relaxes us and makes us feel normal at times.

Even if as United fans, the last few years have not brought the supporters much joy with the chopping and changing of managers and the embarrassing results, football is still something which is ravenously craved.

Without the football, which often consumes the avid supporter, life can be even more challenging.

The uncertainty of the situation does not help. You start to miss the little things. Phil Jones sliding around on the floor. Jesse Lingard running past his opponent with a feint and then blasting the ball over the bar.

Instagram videos made by players and transfer rumours is the only way to fill the void.

Alas, there is hope however. The Bundesliga could be set to resume after the first week of May and it seems Manchester United could follow suit.

United assistant boss Kieran McKenna speaking on the United App via the Metro revealed that the club are planning on returning to training after/if lockdown measures are lifted on 7th May.

This is what Kieran McKenna said in full:

"“At the moment, we are working towards, touch wood, the lockdown loosening after the next deadline and being able to return to some sort of training. We are working to that schedule at the moment but, if we have to push back again, we have got a plan B and plan C already prepared.”"

That will give many of the fans some reassuring hope that football could be edging closer back to some sort of normality. Of course it will only mean the players will be allowed to train. However surely if training is permitted, the return of the Premier League will not be far away either.

Next. This United legend could be set for a return to the club. dark
