Premier League to hold emergency meeting after Arteta coronavirus diagnosis

first_imgExecutive members of the Premier League are expected to hold an emergency meeting today to discuss future fixtures after Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, was diagnosed with the coronavirus, the league announced. “In light of Arsenal’s announcement tonight confirming that their first-team coach Mikel Arteta has tested positive for COVID-19, the Premier League will convene an emergency club meeting tomorrow morning regarding future fixtures,” the league said in a statement on Thursday night. “The Premier League will make no further comment until after that meeting.” Despite the Premier League’s statement, Arsenal’s Saturday opponent, Brighton and Hove Albion, released a statement following the Arteta news that the game between the two teams had been postponed. “In light of the news that broke earlier on Thursday evening concerning Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta and his first-team squad, we can confirm that Saturday’s match against Arsenal has now been postponed,” read the Brighton statement. The Prem had announced just hours before the Arteta news that games would go on as scheduled this weekend despite leagues all over the world postponing and cancelling games as the coronavirus spreads. However, Arteta’s diagnosis and the subsequent decision to isolate members of the Arsenal squad prompted a rethink. “While the Prime Minister advised that all sporting events should take place as normal for now, he also indicated that Government is considering banning major public events, like sporting fixtures,” the league said in the initial statement. “We are therefore continuing to work closely with our clubs, Government, The FA, EFL and other relevant stakeholders to ensure appropriate contingency plans are in place as and when circumstances change. “The welfare of players, staff and supporters is of paramount importance and we will continue to follow Public Health England guidelines thoroughly.” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday that the UK will move to what he called the “delay” stage of his plan to combat the virus. “We are considering banning major public events like sporting fixtures,” he said.

While in other sports, the NBA and NHL have suspended their seasons while the wildly popular NCAA men’s and women’s basketball tournaments have been cancelled for the first time in their history. The Premier League match between Manchester City and Arsenal, scheduled for March 11, was the first Premier League game to be postponed. Meanwhile, three unnamed Leicester City players are in self-isolation after showing symptoms for the coronavirus, as is Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy, according to ESPN sources.
