Arsenal manager Mike Arteta and Chelsea’s winger Odoi test positive to Coronavirus. The Gunners have shut down their training ground and club staff who had recent contact with Arteta will now self-isolate. The Premier League will hold “an emergency club meeting” on Friday to discuss future fixtures.
Arsenal Football Club manager, Mikel Arteta has tested positive for coronavirus and as a result, the club’s game against Brighton on Saturday has been postponed.
“This is really disappointing,” said Arteta, 37. “I took the test after feeling poorly. I will be at work as soon as I’m allowed.” A significant number of people are expected to self isolate at Arsenal, including the full first-team squad.
The club were due to face Brighton in the Premier League at Amex Stadium on Saturday (15:00 GMT) but Brighton released a statement, shortly after confirmation of Arteta’s positive test, announcing that the game had been called off.
Meanwhile, Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has also tested positive for the virus. Chelsea say Hudson-Odoi “displayed symptoms similar to a mild cold on Monday morning” and stayed away from the training ground.
The club added that the player is “doing well and looking forward to returning to the training ground as soon as it is possible”.
Chelsea’s full squad has gone into isolation. Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy is self-isolating as a precaution after a member of his family was admitted to hospital displaying symptoms of coronavirus.
Three Leicester City first-team players have also self-isolated after showing symptoms of coronavirus. The Premier League now appears to be edging closer to an unprecedented suspension as most teams seem to have put their squads in isolation until tests can be carried out.
