Arsenal’s team would be permitted to return to their training center from next week,with strict adherence to maintaining the British government guidelines designed to fight the spread of coronavirus.

The Premiers League side players will have access to training pitches but on a strict rotational basis that will see them upholding the social distancing measures.

One of the club spokesman said: “Players will be permitted access to our London Colney training grounds next week,”.

“Access will be limited, carefully managed and social distancing will be maintained at all times, as all colney buildings remain closed.

He also stated that players will travel alone, do their individual workout and return home.
