A developing Covid outburst at Manchester City prompted the deferment of 28th Dec’s Premier League match at Everton and constrained the squad to close its training ground. On 25th December, Spanish professional football manager, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City had declared that Gabriel Jesus and Kyle Walker had tested positive for Coronavirus alongside two staff individuals. On 26th December, Manchester City had the option to play Newcastle.
Yet, hours before the opening shot was expected at Goodison Park on 28th December, Manchester City declared that the most recent round of Covid testing had delivered a number of new positive cases in the squad.
Manchester City stated that “With the safety & security of the bio bubble breached, they represented a danger that the infection could spread further among the team members, the staff, and possibly past. In view of solid clinical counsel the Premier League, in the conference with the Man City and another club, have chosen to postpone the match.” It comes in the midst of worries in Britain about the spread of a variant of Coronavirus.
“The Man City’s training ground at the City Football Academy will close for an unspecific period, with the squad and related bio bubble going through testing before any choice is made for preparing to continue the training,”
Manchester City’s excursion to Everton is the 2nd match this Premier League season to be canceled due to the Covid cases of evidence after Newcastle’s match against Aston Villa toward the beginning of the month.
