Reports coming out this afternoon suggest that no player or coaching staff member at Manchester United has tested positive for COVID-19.
That’s according to Stretford Paddock following some worrying news about members of other clubs.
The Premier League confirmed earlier today that six players and/or club staff members at three different clubs had tested positive for the coronavirus, as per Sky Sports.
A Premier League press release confirmed: “Players or club members who have tested positive will now self isolate for a period of seven days.”
The Premier League remain committed to proceed with the next stages of ‘Project Restart’ with training thought to recommence at some point this week, however, the orginial start date for competitive league games of June 12th looks set to be pushed back until atleast the last weekend in June.
With a field of 0.8% of positive tests, the Premier League will likely see today’s results as good news, with far less confirmed cases than orginially feared, it is looking more and more likely that we will see top flight English football return during the summer of 2020.
