Testing on players and staff in England’s top-flight is to double to twice a week in areas of the country under tier four restrictions.
However, since then Manchester City have confirmed another four positive tests for Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker and two staff members.
“We have to avoid any kind of risk because we have a small squad and we have problems with some players out.
“We cannot afford to lose any player, we tell them on a daily basis ‘don’t relax and try to be more careful’.”
“Our kitchen staff puts together a big box of the basic things that we need,” added Nuno.
“During the high moment of the pandemic everybody had it. When the situation improved we said to players ‘you are free to go and do your own shopping’.
“But now as the levels are increasing so high, and we have this new mutation that everyone is so worried about, we start putting this together again. It’s about protecting ourselves.”
