Albion clarify Austin “virus” story

20 March 2020

Albion would like to clarify that striker Charlie Austin has NOT tested positive for COVID-19.

Charlie reported symptoms commonly associated with the coronavirus and on medical advice from the Club was told to stay away from training and “self-isolate” a week ago.

Contrary to reports this evening, Charlie was not tested for the virus and has subsequently made a full recovery.

“I felt terrible for a few days but I never tested for the virus and feel fine now,” said Charlie.

“It was sensible advice to self-isolate from the rest of the lads and from my family during this period. I’ve now made a full recovery.” 

The Club would like to confirm that no other players have required testing for coronavirus.
