Arteta tested positive for coronavirus

Arteta, Arsenal head coach tested positive for Coronavirus.

This sad news was made known in a statement by Arsenal on Thursday evening.

However, the club’s training centre has been closed after head coach Mikel Arteta received a positive COVID-19.

From the club Press: “We expect this to be a significant number of people from Colney, including the full first-team squad and coaching staff, as well as a smaller number of people from our Hale End Academy which we have also temporarily closed as a precaution.

“Those that did not have close contact with Mikel are expected to return to work in the coming days.

“ Our Colney and Hale End training centres will undergo a deep clean and our other club sites are operating as normal.

He also stated that Arsenal will not be able to play the remaining matches for the meantime.

“It is clear we will not be able to play some fixtures on their currently scheduled dates. We will update supporters who have tickets for forthcoming games with more information as soon as possible.

“We will let them know what has happened and they should follow the NHS guidance which is likely to recommend self-isolation.”
