CHRIST ALMIGHTY Man Utd ace Christen Press reports that after mystery disease she was "never so sick," but maintains that it was not coronavirus.
CHRISTEN PRESS reported that after she was struck down with a mysterious disease that left her sidelined for a month, she was never been so sick.
Since November 19, the World Cup winner hasn't played for United in their League Cup victory over rivals Manchester City.
And even though she didn't disclose what the disease was, she maintains it wasn't Covid-19.
"Over the past few weeks, she told the club's website: "Thanks for all the good wishes and affection. I'd never been so sick in my life—no, I didn't have Covid,
Happy to say that I feel a lot better.
"I’m back training with the team and I’m getting stronger every day. I’m looking forward to the next time I play."
For Old Trafford fans, the good news comes as a big boost.
"She's back baby!!!! Can't wait to see her back on the pitch. Hopefully this Sunday. It would be a great way to end 2020."She's back baby!!!! Can't wait to see her back on the pitch. This Sunday, hopefully. It will be a great way to end 2020.
The press is a huge favorite among club fans, and in the first three days of their publication, the shirt sales of her and Tobin Heath outstripped any male player.
In September, in a big coup for the Women's Super League, the American superstars made it to the Red Devils.
The pair have made a combined 306 appearances for their nation and were both part of the World Cup winning squads in 2015 and 2019.
Press, born in Los Angeles, opted for the number 24 shirt in tribute to Kobe Bryant, the late basketball legend.
On November 27, the last time Press was featured in a match was in a US friendly match against Holland.
She could play against the rock bottom of Bristol City this weekend if she had completely shaken off her illness.
A win would keep the top of the table for United, but if she doesn't play on Sunday, then she's going to have to wait until the Red Devils face Everton in January.
