A third Brighton player has tested positive for coronavirus, chief executive Paul Barber has confirmed.
It was confirmed in match that a Brighton player has tested positive after three members of the squad had shown symptoms.
Barber confirmed a third member of the first-team group has produced a positive test despite the safety guidelines being in place.
“It is a concern,” he said. “Unfortunately we’ve had a third player test positive so despite all of the measures that we’ve been taking over the past few weeks, where the players haven’t been involved in any significant training at all, we’ve still suffered another player testing positive for the virus.”So there are concerns and I think it’s normal for all clubs to have those concerns. We want to make sure we do everything that we can to ensure those protocols are in place and are safe and secure and mitigate the risk as far as we can.”
