Eight players from West Ham in protective stone


“I am relieved to say they are showing light symptoms and that they and their families are safe,” said Vice President Karen Brady in an interview with the local newspaper, The Sun, on Saturday.

“But the virus is still shaking hands, coughing or sneezing from us, so it should not be underestimated.”

Arsenal coach Michael Arteta and Chelsea striker Calum Hudson-Odoy, who are now recovering, have been infected with the “Covid-19” virus in the Premier League, in addition to some Leicester players.

West Ham players, who are 16th in the league, are training from their homes while the club hopes to resume training sessions at its headquarters when the quarantine and the full lockdown period imposed in Britain ends until April 13th.

The Premier League has announced the suspension of its competitions until April 30, while reports indicate that this period will be extended or even the remaining matches canceled.

However, Brady hopes to resume the league to its end, even if the teams are forced to play matches behind closed doors to the fans until July.

“When we last spoke as Premier League clubs, we agreed to resume (the League) as soon as possible, and the matches may continue to July if necessary to end the season. This is the plan. This is what we want to present,” Brady said.

“This could mean that matches are played behind closed doors, which is something that no one, especially players and fans, hopes for. But we hope that it will be possible once the number of injuries begins to decrease.”
