Aston Villa players may have been exposed to COVID-19 at King Power Stadium
Three first team members of Leicester City’s squad have self-isolated after showcasing symptoms of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, the pandemic that is sweeping its way across sport, and the world.
Having played at the King Power Stadium on Monday, there is a good chance that Aston Villa coaching and playing staff could have been exposed.
There is currently no knowledge as to whether members of the Aston Villa Women squad or youth sides will be affected due to their shared use of Bodymoor Heath.
With the future of this Premier League season already hanging in the balance, this news brings further distress to players, staff, and most importantly fans.
Chelsea were also forced to call off training after fears that someone close to the club were showing symptoms – with the club undertaking a deep clean of their training facilities.
Late last night, it was announced that Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odio had tested positive for the virus, as had Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.
There are now at least three or four Premier League clubs with major Coronavirus scares.
Elsewhere and suspension of games
Elsewhere in the football world, Juventus defender Daniele Rugani and Sampdoria forward Manolo Gabbiadini have tested positive for the virus.
All professional football in England is now suspended until 3rd April at the earliest.
