Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta positive COVID-19


Staff member
A statement via the club's official website reads:

"Our London Colney training centre has been closed after head coach Mikel Arteta received a positive COVID-19 result this evening.
"Arsenal personnel who had recent close contact with Mikel will now self-isolate in line with Government health guidelines.
"We 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 our Hale End Academy which we have also temporarily closed as a precaution.
"We expect those who did not have close contact with Mikel to return to work in the coming days.
