Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has tested positive for Covid-19.

The Premier League club announced on its website that its London Colney training centre has been shut down after the manager received his Covid-19 results on Thursday evening (12th March).

“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,” the club said in a statement.

“We are now working to trace any other people who have had recent close contact with Mikel. We will let them know what has happened and they should follow the NHS guidance which is likely to recommend self-isolation.”

The full first team squad is now expected to self-quarantine following Government guidelines. They said that they 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 their Hale End Academy which we have also temporarily closed as a precaution.

“This is really disappointing but I took the test after feeling poorly. I will be at work as soon as I’m allowed,” Mikel Arteta said.

The Premier League announced it would hold an emergency meeting tomorrow in light of the news from Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo, has imposed a self-quarantine on himself after one of his teammates tested positive for Covid-19.
