Aston Villa announced this Saturday that its trainer, Steven Gerrard, had tested positive for Covid-19 and therefore placed in solitary confinement, in accordance with the protocol in force in England. A new case within the elite of English football as the virus actively circulates and upsets the plans of the Premier League.
The former iconic midfielder of the Liverpool Reds will therefore not be able to be present on the Villains bench during the next two matches for his team in the league: this Sunday for the reception of Chelsea (6.30 p.m.) then Tuesday, traveling to Leeds ( 6.30 p.m.). Aston Villa is 10th in the Premier League.
Aston Villa can confirm Head Coach Steven Gerrard will be unable to attend our next two Premier League matches with Chelsea and Leeds United as he will be isolating after testing positive for COVID-19.
