Elliott Bennet

Two Fulham’s players and Blackburn Rovers’ Elliott Bennett, have tested positive for coronavirus.

Blackburn have confirmed the positive test in a tweet sighted by African Entertainment on their official Twitter handle.

According to Bennet,
“It’s not a big deal at all. It’s the people who are seriously ill in hospital that we need to worry about, not footballers who are fit and healthy.”

He says he feels ‘fit and healthy’ despite testing positive for coronavirus
Elliott Bennett says he feels ‘fit and healthy’ despite testing positive for coronavirus
Blackburn midfielder Elliott Bennett and two unnamed Fulham players have tested positive for coronavirus.

Bennett, 31, is asymptomatic and feeling no ill effects.

Blackburn say Bennett will now self-isolate at home for the next seven days and provided he develops no symptoms, will return to training with his Rovers team-mates on Friday June 5.

The club has also said the players and coaching staff who were in the same group as Bennett for Monday’s small group training session have subsequently been re-tested and have again provided negative results.

Bennett stated in a statement that “I feel fit and healthy. Hopefully this sends out a positive message to the community that perhaps many people have or have had the virus without showing any effects.

“I obviously would never have known if we hadn’t returned to training and taken the tests, because I don’t feel unwell and have got no symptoms whatsoever.”

“There seems to have been a lot of hysteria about footballers returning to training, but it’s not a big deal at all. It’s the people who are seriously ill in hospital that we need to worry about, not footballers who are fit and healthy, and who aren’t showing any signs of being unwell.”

The EFL says 1,030 players and club staff were tested over the course of Monday 25, Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 May.
