Tottenham Hotspur records Covid-19 epidemic outbreak. A number of players and staff members tested positive for lateral flow.
The positive tests have thrown Antonio Conte’s training preparations into chaos, according to Football London.
No decisions about their next games are believed to be made until all of those who tested positive undergo a PCR test tomorrow.
Tottenham is due to meet Rennes in a Europa Conference League match on Thursday.
Then they have a Premier League match against Brighton at the Amex on Sunday.
Spurs’ upcoming fixtures could be jeopardized if tomorrow’s PCR tests come back positive, confirming the outbreak.
But both turned out to be false positives. Europa Conference League rules dictate that fixtures must be fulfilled unless ‘less than 13 players registered on the A list or no registered goalkeeper are available’. So as it stands, the match would likely go ahead.
Spurs have been trying to build momentum in the Premier League.
The Lilywhites are unbeaten domestically since Conte’s arrival.
They followed up victories over Leeds and Brentford with a 3-0 beating of Norwich at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday. This happens to be the second time tottenham Hotspur records Covid-19 epidemic Outbreak.
