Manchester City and Arsenal had an appointment at Etihad Stadium this Wednesday, in which they would play for the Premier League. However, on Tuesday night, the London team released a note with the statement to postpone the match, due to the fact that some players in the squad had contact with Evangelos Marinakis. The Greek owns Olympiacos in Greece and Nottingham Forest in England.

The reason for the postponement of the match is because the owner tested positive to Covid-19, the virus that crosses multiple countries in Europe, directly affecting not only football but several important areas of the world and society.

On February 27, Arsenal and Olympiacos played at Emirates Stadium, for the Europa League. The Greek team advanced for the round of 16, eliminating the Gunners inside their home. After the clash, some players of the English team had contact with Marinakis, who still didn’t know that he got the virus. The medical recommendation is that players should not play any matches, once they have little chance of testing positive as well.

The medical recommendation is that the Arsenal players and employees remain at home for a period of 14 days, with that, they will not be available for the confrontation against the Citizens.

With this epidemy in practically the whole of Europe, the tendency is that little by little each country will make the decision to cancel all events that have a large number of people. Which means football is also one of them.

Now, after matches had been played behind closed doors, as some in the round of 16 of both Champions League and Europa League, football has been suspended in most parts of Europe. The first ones to do so were Italy and Switzerland. Among the big ones, the Premier League and the Bundesliga were the last ones to suspend their matches.
