The Premier League has informed this Saturday of the result obtained in the last tests made to the players of the first squads and their respective technical bodies, in total 1,130 tests that have all been negative, the first fully satisfactory result in two weeks of controls.
The English competition confirmed that “there were no positive results” en the coronavirus tests that were carried out on players and coaches between May 28 and 29. This is the fourth revision to which the Premier League footballers are exposed, whose return is confirmed for June 17.
However, despite one hundred percent ‘negatives’ in recent tests, there are still 12 positive tests in the first three rounds, including Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and Watford’s Adrian Mariappa, the only ones to reveal their identity.
After these first results, the Premier League decided to increase the control of the players with more tests. This time between 50 and 60 tests per staff per day have been carried out. Starting this Monday, the teams will be able to train as a group since they resumed the sessions on May 19.
This same Saturday, the British Government supported the return of elite sports competitions behind closed doors, and domestically, starting this Monday. This decision supports the date agreed by the Premier to close a League that has Liverpool only two wins away.
