Coronavirus: Premier League to hold emergency meeting Friday morning



 The Premier League will convene an emergency meeting on Friday morning, to take decisions on fixtures, following news that Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has tested positive for coronavirus.

Earlier on Thursday, it was announced that all Premier League games scheduled for this weekend would go ahead, despite other top European leagues like LaLiga and Serie A being suspended.

However, the news about Arteta has forced them to reconsider.

“In light of Arsenal’s announcement tonight confirming that their first-team coach Mikel Arteta has tested positive for COVID-19, the Premier League will convene an emergency club meeting tomorrow morning regarding future fixtures.

“The Premier League will make no further comment until after that meeting,” a statement read.

It is expected that football will be suspended until further notice.
