Manchester United club doctor, Steve McNally reveals some of the most bizarre injury problems he has dealt with during the COVID-19 lockdown on players.
I find a lot of humor when writing on the Manchester United players that have suffered burnt injuries when cooking. The best part is the player that was bitten by his own pet. What was he up to when this happened? Let’s find out.
The Premier League football was suspended after the COVID-19 took over the world almost bringing it to shutdown. Players have been forced to work from their homes while being monitored by their respective coaches and assistances.
Manchester United was not an exception. They too have been in a lockdown training alone at home for a few weeks now.
However, despite being football professionals they have encountered some new and difficult tasks where they have been subjected to different lifestyles that come with a price.
The Manchester United club doctor, Steve McNally has revealed some of the problems his patients have been facing.
“The nutritionist got the boys on an Instagram page looking at cooking lessons.” Explained Dr. McNally.
“A lot of them have started to develop a new skill and one or two got injured in the process. Fortunately, most of the boys have been well. We’re not getting injuries although there have been a few unusual complaints because they have tried their hand at cooking or have been bitten by the dog.”
“The type of thing is just a different focus.”
Frankly, I do enjoy how Dr. McNally drops the bombshell. The players are receiving tips on the cooking and are making up injuries in the process. As well, one is being attacked by their home pets.
Maybe, we need someone to advise Phil Jones not to tease his German Shephard by waving bits of fresh meat in the air.
Players mental wellness
When asked as to how the club plans to protect the players’ mental health, Dr. McNally responded, “If things go as we hope and we get back to some sort of group training in the month or two, then, that will be a positive thing.”
“But the longer it goes on we may have to be a bit proactive on the mental side. We thought about this as we knew we were going to be in lockdown and put together a package for them to give them a number of resources to tap if they wanted.” The Dr. concluded.
