The CFG training ground will also be closed for an “indeterminate period” with the squad to face more tests before any decision on a return to training. Kyle Walker and Gabriel Jesus and two members of staff tested positive before Newcastle game. Newcastle will also be retested in order to limit the spread.
We hope for a speedy recovery to all involved.
