In the Premier League, football will soon resume, at least collective training. Yet this seems to be always problematic and this is even more the case with the fact that some players, like Troy Deeney, the captain of Watford, do not want to resume the path of training. Especially since we have just learned that six new cases of covid-19 had been detected.
“The Premier League can confirm today that Sunday May 17 and Monday May 18, 748 players and club staff have been tested for COVID-19. Of these, six have tested positive in three clubs. Players or club staff who test positive will now self-isolate for a period of seven days. The Premier League provides this aggregated information for the purposes of integrity and monitoring of competition. No specific details on clubs or individuals will be provided by the Premier League due to legal and operational requirements.
