Willian says what Chelsea will do to players breaking self-isolation
Willian revealed Chelsea will issue a fine for any player who breaks the self-isolation period.
The West London outfit ordered the men’s team players, along with the coaches and staff to stay at home following Callum Hudson-Odoi’s positive test for coronavirus.
Chelsea partially closed training facilities as Cobham went a deep-cleaning procedure to prevent the spread of the virus.
Manager Frank Lampard has recently said Hudson-Odoi is “close to his usual-self”, but the Chelsea players are still self-isolating until the end of the week.
Mason Mount was caught breaking the club’s order after spotted playing football with West Ham’s Declan Rice on Sunday, though the 21-year-old has reportedly apologised to Lampard and been reminded of his responsibilities (Football London).
But based on what Willian’s explanation, his teammate is likely to face punishment from the club.
He told Esporte Interativo: “The instructions they passed on to us were that no one should leave the house.
“Unless there’s something you need to buy, at the market or at the pharmacy. But we shouldn’t leave the house, not to go to any other type of place.
“And if the club knew something that the players would be leaving, they would fine us. That’s what they said to us.”
In order to keep the players fit during self-isolation, Chelsea have reportedly sent gym kits such as treadmills and bench pressing machines to the players (The Sun).
In the last few days, Chelsea players including Antonio Rudiger, Reece James and Tammy Abraham posted their workout activities on Instagram.
