Arsenal FC boss, Mikel Arteta has said he has recovered from the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to Spanish television channel La Sexta, Arteta said he is ‘very well now.’
He stated: “I’m very well now, I feel that I have recovered.
‘It took me three or four days to start feeling much better and with more energy, to leave the symptoms behind and now, the truth is that I feel very well.”
The Arsenal manager further explained how he contacted the COVID-19, stating: “Everything happened very fast. On Tuesday afternoon I was feeling so so and I went to see the doctor but he wasn’t there. I got a call from the board of directors after training while I was in my car and they told me that the president of Olympiakos had tested positive and everyone that had been in contact was at risk.
“I went on to tell them that I wasn’t feeling well and that we had a situation because we had lots of players that had been in contact with them Olympiakos.
“We had a game against Manchester City the next day and obviously, we couldn’t put lots of people at risk without saying anything. I had the test done last Wednesday and I was diagnosed on Friday, when we had to communicate it to the Premier League that I had tested positive.”
