Eight West Ham players are in self-isolation after showing mild symptoms of the coronavirus.
This was disclosed by the Club’s vice-Chairperson, Karren Brady, on Saturday, March 28, 2020.
The Hammers are the latest Premier League club to be hit by the pandemic.
AFP stated that Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta, Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, both now recovered and several unnamed Leicester players tested positive for the virus.
Brady told The Sun Newspaper on Saturday that: “I am relieved to say they are all showing mild symptoms and, along with their families, seem to be well.”
West Ham’s Players are training at home and the club hopes to resume regular sessions at its base when Britain’s lockdown period ends on April 13.
The Premier League season is suspended until at least April 30, with reports suggesting there will be a further delay or even cancellation of the remaining fixtures, but Brady hopes the domestic season can resume and reach a conclusion, even if games have to be played behind closed doors until July.
