It was confirmed that Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive to coronavirus in the early hours of Friday morning.

Hudson-Odoi has been out injured for weeks and missed the last couple of games for Chelsea, and after it was confirmed that he has tested positive to the virus, the Chelsea team were told to self-isolate.

Willian has now revealed how Hudson-Odoi joined the team in the dressing room after the 4-0 thrashing of Everton, and why they were told to self-isolate after Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive to Covid-19.

The Chelsea star said, according to Sports Witness: “I remember we played against Everton on a Sunday, I think, and he was injured, but he was at the game, he went to watch the game, after the game he stayed in the locker room with us.

“On Monday we had a day off and came back on Tuesday. Then he didn’t present himself again. On Tuesday, Wednesday and even Thursday he hadn’t returned to training. Then we learned that he wasn’t well, that he was sick, felt a fever, I think, and I think Thursday night was when we heard that he tested positive for the Coronavirus.

“So, starting this Thursday night, the club informed us that we were supposed to stay at home, not leave the house until further information. That was what happened.”

Willian also revealed that the players were given strict rules that the club put in place for them to adhere to.

He continued: “The instructions they passed on to us were that no one should leave the house.

“Unless there’s something you need to buy, at the market or at the pharmacy. But we shouldn’t leave the house, not to go to any other type of place.

“And if the club knew something that the players would be leaving, they would fine us. That’s what they said to us.”
