Leicester City have announced that they have asked their women’s and girls’ teams not to attend training during the next seven days according to reports on the club’s official website.
The Foxes are not currently scheduled to play another match until at least next month. Aston Villa are pencilled in to visit Farley Way on 5 April for an FA Women’s Championship fixture but it is unknown whether that game will go ahead with the league currently suspended due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
With Leicester City without a fixture certainly for the next three weeks, the decision has been made to cancel training for the next seven days, a move which is hoped will help reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus.
Jonathan Morgan’s side were scheduled to take on FA Women’s Super League club Manchester City in the Women’s FA Cup quarter-finals this afternoon but the match was postponed on Friday after The Football Association opted to suspend women’s football for the next three weeks.
Leicester City reported on Thursday that three members of their men’s side were put into self-isolation after showing symptoms of the Coronavirus, although it is unknown whether they would have tested positive for the virus.
