Meanwhile, Chelsea, the English Premiership Club, has announced that its player, Callum Hudson-Odoi, has also tested positive for the coronavirus.
This is coming on the heels of earlier announcement by Arsenal that its manager, Mikel Arteta, has tested positive to the virus, resulting in postponement of their match with Brighton on Saturady.
In a statement on its website, the Blues said: “Chelsea men’s team player Callum Hudson-Odoi had a positive test result for Coronavirus returned this evening (Thursday).
“Despite testing positive for the virus, Callum is doing well and looking forward to returning to the training ground as soon as it is possible.
“We wish Callum a speedy recovery and look forward to welcoming him back to the club soon.”
This development means that the clubs first team as well as the coaches and support staff will have to go into isolation, making tomorrow’s encounter with Aston Villa highly improbable.
