“Results taken with great heart”

Geraint Hughes, Sky Sports News reporter:

“A cautious optimism is how all of these test results were viewed because they need to be analyzed individually and collectively.

“But out of 7,487 tests carried out, there were 14 positive returns, or around 0.2%, so another encouraging sign.

“Since the Premier League is back in a week, having only two positives from the previous four test cycles will be taken with heart, not only by the Premier League, but by Public Health England and the government. “

Some large clubs travel with more than 60 staff and club directors, including masseurs, up to three coaches of specialized goalkeepers and security guards.

However, the Premier League is keen to downsize all staff, except on key days, to only 37 “red zone” pass holders per team, including 20 players, 12 coaches and medical staff, and five “essential” staff members.

Unnecessary field personnel, such as analysts, will be permitted in the orange zone, with all others – including security, large screen operators and parking personnel – in the green zone.

The total number of matches, including broadcast staff, print media, commentators, doping officials and scouts, will be 300.
