Greek football club, Olympiacos have made an announcement on Twitter this morning that the coronavirus tests carried out on all their players including, coaches and board members have tested negative.
The club underwent tests after their owner Evangelos Marinakis, who also owns Nottingham Forest, informed them on Tuesday that he had been diagnosed with the virus.
“Olympiacos FC informs that after the required medical exams to which all the members of the football staff, as well as board members and staff, were submitted, all the tests came out negative for the COVID-19 virus,” the club said in a statement on Wednesday morning.
Last month, Olympiacos defeated Arsenal 2 – 1 in their Europa clash at the Emirate stadium. Mr. Evangelos who attended the match came into “contact” with personnel from Gunner, this has prompted the forcing of Arsenal’s Premier League fixture against Manchester City, scheduled for Wednesday, to be postponed as a precaution.
Arsenal’s players are self-isolating at home but are expected to return to training on Friday, March 13 if they’re also tested negative.
