Arsenal becomes the first Premier League club to resume training since the suspension of football activities and all league games due to the outbreak of Coronavirus.
The Gunners’ squad will be allowed to return to train at the club’s London Colney training ground from next week Monday. They will undertake some light running individually in order to maintain the government’s coronavirus regulations to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
According to Metro UK, the players will also operate on a strict rotational basis, with small groups arriving individually and they will not come into contact with each other.
A club spokesperson confirmed: ‘Players will be permitted access to our London Colney training grounds next week. ‘Access will be limited, carefully managed and social distancing will be maintained at all times. All Colney buildings remain closed. Players will travel alone, do their individual workout, and return home.’
Meanwhile, Premier League will resume action fully in June with the remaining games expected to be played behind closed doors due to social distancing concerns.
A Government spokesman said: “Ministers continue to work with sports governing bodies on how to live sporting events can resume in the future. This can only happen once we have passed the five tests for easing social distancing measures.”
