Last week it was confirmed by Leicester City football club that three senior players are in self-isolation due to coronavirus symptoms. How are they doing?
The football world is in disarray: shut down and no return – with supporters not attending, at least – in sight. While the rest of the globe attempts to combat the threat of coronavirus. Sport is obviously unimportant in these times; though we will keep you updated with any Leicester City news along the way.
Foxes of Leicester reported yesterday that the Foxes’ home ground, King Power stadium, is still functional. With some staff still at work. Belvoir Drive, the team’s training facility, is also operational.
In fact the majority of the squad are still keeping fit and practicing together. Albeit the players can’t over do it so they are undertaking a reduced activity load. However, maintaining the levels of fitness required for these high performance athletes is paramount.
With no games to compete in, maintaining match fitness is impossible. It may be worth introducing some inter-side friendlies, including the Under-23s, also. Brendan Rodgers is a marvelous coach with a great staff supporting him, therefore us Blue Army members have nothing to worry about.
Leicester City’s isolated trio
Meanwhile, three Leicester City players are in quarantine: they were ordered to self-isolate after complaining of what was described on lcfc.com before the weekend as “extremely mild symptoms” of coronavirus.
This week, Leicester Mercury reported that the trio are all apparently doing fine and have not deteriorated. Though they have not yet been named – which is also explained below the link:
“…because it’s a matter relating to health, they [LCFC] have a level of medical confidentiality [to not name the affected men].
“…as of Monday, the three players in question have not shown further symptoms of the virus. The self-isolation was a precaution because of cold-like symptoms, with none of the three players hitting the threshold for testing.”
