Soccer in England has been suspended indefinitely and no clubs have been in training since Arsenal’s Spanish manager Mikel Arteta was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus on 12 March. No matches have been played since.
The Premier League is suspended until at least 30 April while lockdown measures are in place in the United Kingdom until 7 May, when the government is set to review the current restrictions in place.
