Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he can’t see the benefit in a two-week break in the season amid fears over a rise in Covid-19 cases.
The Premier League has confirmed 18 positive coronavirus tests among players and staff in its latest round of testing – the highest figure of the season so far.
Hours after the Premier League released the latest figures, it emerged that Fulham’s game at Tottenham on Wednesday evening is in doubt after a number of coronavirus cases were recorded by the west London side.
Manchester City’s trip to Everton on Monday was postponed hours before kick-off due to multiple positive cases within the City camp, while Aston Villa vs Newcastle was called off earlier this month after the Magpies were hit by the virus.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock says it is a matter for football authorities along with Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden to decide on what measures should be taken amid a rise in coronavirus cases.
But Solskjaer is concerned what a circuit break would do to an already-rammed schedule.
