Arsenal players will return to training on Tuesday after embarking on a 14-day self isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta who tested positive to the deadly disease, prompting Arsenal’s game at Brighton to be postponed and playing a part in the Premier League opting to cancel all fixtures until April 4, has already disclosed he was feeling better as reported by FrujuSports.
In line with government advice, all Arsenal players and backroom staff were forced into a 14-day self-isolation period due to working in such close proximity to Arteta.
However, Tuesday marks the end of the isolation and the club’s London Colney training base will reopen and training will resume ahead of the planned home game against Norwich on April 4.
Some Arsenal players were already self-isolating before Arteta’s test after it was revealed Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis had also contracted the disease.
Those members of the team who had come into close contact with Marinakas following the Greek side’s shock Europa League win at the Emirates Stadium were in isolation, leading to the postponement of the already rescheduled Premier League trip to Manchester City last week.
Some premier league teams are self isolating as their training grounds have been closed while some are still in action.
