“Thanks for your words and support.Feeling better already.We’re all facing a huge & unprecedented challenge.” wrote Arteta on Twitter.
“Everyone’s health is all that matters right now.Protect each other by following the guidelines & we’ll come through this together.Well done PL for making the right decisions.”
The gunners will be hoping that Mikel Arteta recovers from the virus and it will be interesting to see if the Premier League will indeed reopen next month as the chances of making the season null and void are extremely low when there’s a title race, top four and six race and relegation battle at stake.
