Arsenal have announced that first team coach Mikel Arteta after he contracted the deadly coronavirus.
The club made this known in a statement released on their official website on Thursday.
Also, the club announced that its London Colney training ground has been re-opened.
After it was announced that Arteta contracted the coronavirus, this prompted the entire Gunners squad to go into self-isolation, and subsequently the Premier League to suspend fixtures.
As a precaution Arsenal’s London Colney training ground was also shut down to undergo a deep clean.
The Premier League has this Thursday announced that all fixtures will be suspended until at least April 30.
“Our training centres in London Colney and Hale End were closed for deep cleaning after Mikel’s diagnosis with the virus but have now re-opened with a small workforce to maintain the facilities and training pitches,” the statement read.
“A number of staff, including Mikel and the men’s first team squad, are currently isolating at home.
“We’re pleased to say that Mikel is feeling much better. He’s in good spirits, doing detailed planning with the coaches and speaking to the players regularly.
“The women’s and academy teams are also currently staying at home.
“All our players are looking forward to getting back out on the training pitches as soon as the situation allows.”How To Make Your Money Work For You During The Covid-19 Pandemic" Earn up to $10,000 residual income monthly....Grab your copy Now!
