There have been doubts if one of the EPL re-opening matches will hold on Friday, Tottenham vs Man United.
In a friendly match that was played behind closed doors between Tottenham and Norwich City, it was confirmed that a Norwich player has tested positive to Coronavirus in the latest batch of testing results on Saturday after the match.
The player is currently being isolated for seven days and speculations have it that Tottenham players might join him as he might have been in close contact with them.
Tottenham have released an official statement to counter the rumors saying the match will go live on Friday regardless and that the club’s players were not in close contact with the Norwich player who tested positive to COVID-19/Coronavirus.
The statement reads;
“Close contacts have been defined by the government as being within two metres of a confirmed case for 15 minutes or more,” Tottenham said in a statement.
“The Norwich player in question confirmed he had no ‘close contacts’ with our team and our squad also verified this.
“Our testing has continued to return only negative results for Covid-19 since one positive reading was confirming almost two weeks ago.”
