Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has reassured supporters that he is already “feeling better” after he tested positive for coronavirus.
The Gunners released a statement on Thursday evening confirming that Arteta had been struck down with the virus, and their match against Brighton scheduled for this weekend was postponed.
Since then the Premier League have called off all football until April 4, with teams such as Everton and Bournemouth in self-isolation after a member of their squad also tested positive.
“Thanks for your words and support,” he wrote on Twitter. “Feeling better already. We’re all facing a huge & unprecedented challenge. Everyone’s health is all that matters right now. Protect each other by following the guidelines & we’ll come through this together. Well done PL for making the right decisions.”
