Four positive coronavirus tests have come back in the Premier League in the week of testing prior to the start of the season.
A total of 2,131 players and club staff members were tested between Monday September 7 and Sunday September 13.
The four who have tested positive must now self-isolate for 10 days.
It’s a setback for all clubs involved because their players won’t be able to train or partake in matches during the quarantining period.
A Premier League statement said, as per Sky Sports: “No specific details as to clubs or individuals will be provided by the League and results will be made public after each round of testing.”
Manchester United have yet to comment on whether any of the four belong to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad. Time will tell and we’ll bring you updates once the story develops.
It’s worrying to see the high number of cases returning and mores measures will be put in place. Hopefully decisions are calculated and approved by the right experts because everyone is longing for the end of this pandemic.
Manchester United’s Paul Pogba tested positive for coronavirus and missed out on two Nations League matches with France as a result, but he has since recovered and returned to training at Carrington.
