REUTERS: Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has said he felt "so safe" on his return to training at the club's facilities in Carrington on Wednesday.

English soccer was halted in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic but clubs can now train in small groups as part of the Premier League's 'Project Restart', which envisages a return to play in June.

"It's been a strange few months, but it has been a protocol which the club has followed. It seems such a safe environment," centre back Maguire, 27, told Man United's website https://www.manutd.com/en/news/detail/exclusive-interview-with-man-utd-captain-harry-maguire-on-return-to-training.

"It's our first day back today, but it seems so safe and everyone is respecting it so well, so long may that continue and I'm sure no one will have any problems."

The league confirmed on Tuesday that six people from three different clubs had tested positive for COVID-19.

Maguire believes United are going to great lengths to ensure the well-being of players and staff, with temperature checks carried out each morning and training conducted in 30-minute slots, with a different coach in charge of each segment.
