Brighton player tests positive for coronavirus


Premier League club, Brighton & Hove Albion have announced that a member of their squad has tested positive for coronavirus but they wouldn’t disclose who the player is.

The club’s chief executive Paul Barber confirmed the news saying, three unnamed members of Albion’s squad underwent tests after showing symptoms of Covid-19, with one returning positive.

In a virtual press conference on Thursday, Barber said:

“We’ve had three players tested, one has tested positive. We’re not testing them routinely, we’re only testing them when symptoms emerge, But the one that tested positive was just today, so that’s unfortunate but he’s OK and he’s obviously getting the care that he needs at the moment.”
