Arsenal manager tests positive of coronavirus


Former Manchester City assistant and Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, on Thursday tested positive to COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus.

It was gathered that Arsenal have closed their London Colney training ground, and club staff who had recent contact with Arteta will now go into self-isolation.

The Premier League officials will on Friday hold “an emergency club meeting” to discuss future fixtures.

“This is really disappointing but I took the test after feeling poorly,” said Spaniard Arteta, 37.

“I will be at work as soon as I’m allowed.”

A “significant number of people” at Arsenal will self-isolate, including the “full first-team squad.”

Arsenal managing director, Vinai Venkatesharn: concerned about the health of the players

“The health of our people and the wider public is our priority and that is where our focus is,” said Arsenal managing director Vinai Venkatesham.

“We are in active dialogue with all the relevant people to manage this situation appropriately, and we look forward to getting back to training and playing as soon as medical advice allows.”

It was gathered that all 20 Premier League clubs want to decide on a unified strategy, and one of the possible options that will be discussed at the meeting is postponing all 10 of this weekend’s scheduled fixtures
