Rodgers confirms Leicester trio in quarantine over coronavirus fears

Date published: Thursday 12th March 2020 2:25

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that three Leicester players are self-isolating after showing “symptoms and signs” of coronavirus.

They would be the first Premier League players to contract the virus, after Juventus star Daniele Rugani tested positive.

And Rodgers insists it’s important the club follow procedures, with the public’s health of paramount importance.

He said: “We’ve had a few players that have shown symptoms and signs (of coronavirus). We’ve followed procedures and (as a precaution) they have been kept away from the squad.

“Of course, from a football perspective, it would be a shame, but the public’s health is the most important aspect in all of this.”

“Working in football, it’s about having that agility to move with what’s happening in football. We’re guided by football and federations. We have to press on with our work and prepare as normal.”

“The game is all about the players and the fans. If you have one of those not there, it’s obviously not the same.”
