Tottenham Hotspur confirmed one COVID19 positive in latest testing

Tottenham have confirmed that one of their players have tested positive for Coronavirus.

According to Guardian, the player will now self isolate for seven days. 

With the Premier League set to resume on the 17th of June, this will come as a major blow for the league and Spurs. 

It will be interesting to see how FA and Tottenham deal with this situation now.

Every Premier League player and official has been tested for Covid-19 multiple times and out of 1,197 players and members of staff at the 20 clubs, only one Spurs player has the virus. 

As per reports, the Tottenham player who has tested positive is not a key member of the first team and the Londoners want to keep his identity confidential.

Spurs will be hoping that they can contain the virus from spreaing to the rest of their squad. 

The Londoners need the season to resume this month or it could affect them massively. They are already facing major losses financially and they cannot afford to miss out on next season’s European football.

Jose Mourinho will want to secure a top four finish this season and Spurs will be determined to finish the season strongly. 

Further infections could affect the decision to resume the league and it remains to be seen how the next few days pan out. 

Meanwhile, the Premier League will hold a meeting with the clubs on Thursday to discuss curtailment scenarios, fixture list and matters relating to player registration, squad size and substitutes.
