Chelsea’s Premier League game against Aston Villa this weekend is now in doubt after a player in the squad tested positive to Coronavirus.
19 year old Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has tested positive for Coronavirus and is now undergoing a period of self-isolation.
“Chelsea men’s team player Callum Hudson-Odoi had a positive test result for Coronavirus returned this evening,” according to a statement by Chelsea.
“Chelsea personnel who had recent close contact with the player in the men’s team building will now self-isolate in line with Government health guidelines. These will include initially the full men’s team squad, coaching staff and a number of backroom staff.
“Callum displayed symptoms similar to a mild cold on Monday morning and has not been at the training ground since then as a precaution. However, his test came in positive this evening and he will undergo a period of self-isolation. Despite testing positive for the virus, Callum is doing well and looking forward to returning to the training ground as soon as it is possible.”
We wish Callum a speedy recovery.
