“We’ve had a few players that have shown symptoms and signs [of coronavirus].
“We’ve followed procedures and [as a precaution] they have been kept away from the squad.”
The manager insisted the health of the public is very important.
“Of course, from a football perspective, it would be a shame, but the public’s health is the most important aspect in all of this.
“Working in football, it’s about having that agility to move with what’s happening in football. We’re guided by football and federations. We have to press on with our work and prepare as normal,” he said.
