Olympiacos Releases Update On Players After Owner Tested Positive Of Corona Virus
March. 11, 2020
Olympiacos have confirmed that all their players, staff and management have tested negative of the COVID-19 virus.
This comes a day after the club's owner Evangelos Marinakis tested positive of the virus, sending shockwaves across England and Greece.
The Greek side's involvement with English side Arsenal in the Europa League less than 14 days ago also saw a Premier League clash between the Gunners and Manchester City postponed as a precaution.
"Olympiacos FC informs that after the required medical exams to which all the members of the football staff (players, coaching, medical and technical staff of the team), as well as all the board members and staff, were submitted, all the tests came out negative for the COVID-19 virus," read a statement from the club.
The club is preparing for a Europa League home clash against Wolves on Thursday, which will be played behind closed doors.
The English side had written to UEFA requesting the match to be postponed, but the governing body rejected their appeal.
Other fixtures across Europe have been affected, with most of them set to go on behind closed doors.
