Arsenal Manager Arteta Tests Positive For COVID-19

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has tested positive for COVID-19, the club revealed in a statement on Friday.

Arteta had criticised the Premier League after a glut of coronavirus postponements, calling for more clarity and transparency, saying it was vital to maintain the fairness of the competition.

“Mikel Arteta will miss our match against Manchester City on New Year’s Day after testing positive for COVID-19,” the statement read.

“Mikel is isolating in line with Government guidelines and we wish him well.”

The 39-year-old Spaniard, who contracted the virus at the start of the pandemic, has encouraged people to take up the vaccine.
