Chelsea have confirmed that Callum Hudson-Odoi has tested positive for coronavirus.
This pandemic is perhaps the most talked-about topic around the planet, having claimed thousands of lives so far. A few footballers have contracted the coronavirus that include Daniele Rugani, Manolo Gabbiadini as well as Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has also been tested positive and Chelsea have stated on their official website that their training facility will be closed for some time while those who have been in contract with the youngster will undergo self-isolation.
The statement read: “Chelsea men’s team player Callum Hudson-Odoi had a positive test result for Coronavirus returned this evening. Chelsea personnel who had recent close contact with the player in the men’s team building will now self-isolate in line with Government health guidelines. These will include initially the full men’s team squad, coaching staff and a number of backroom staff.
“It is expected that those who did not have close contact with Callum will return to work in the coming days. In the meantime, the men’s team building, one of several separate buildings at our training ground, will remain closed. The rest of our training facility, Stamford Bridge and our other facilities are operating as normal.”
We all wish a speedy recovery for Hudson-Odoi and all the other people who have contracted coronavirus so far. Premier League matches were played behind closed doors while some have already been postponed and given how things stand, there’s a good chance that the Premier League could be suspended.
UEFA confirmed on their official website that there will be a meeting involving all their stakeholders in order to discuss the league and European competitions along with Euro 2020.
