Speaking on Late Football Club last night, the Head of Goalkeepers at Premier League side Chelsea, Christophe Lollichon, explained how the club dealt with the COVID-19 outbreak that occurred there earlier this week, with English international winger Callum Hudson Odoi notably catching the virus.
“Things started a little bit earlier (in the week), because there was a suspicion, there was an employee who was working at the training centre, who had symptoms that came quite close to that of coronavirus. When I arrived on Thursday morning, I was quickly told to head back home. We weren’t allowed to go to the training centre, training was cancelled as well. Tomorrow (Saturday), in theory, those due to be at the training centre to work, should be allowed to be there. The training centre has been completely disinfected… We don’t have the training schedule yet. There will be nothing this weekend, then decisions will be made at the beginning of next week, to know what planning will be put in place for training. No decision has been made yet.”
