    If he's been in close contact with somebody who has covid why can't he be tested himself and get back to playing if his test comes back negative?

    Thought as much myself, but presumably there are "rules" that prevent such a common sense approach!

    I was under the assumption that he had been tested positive, I might be wrong.

    I read he had been contacted by track and trace as someone he had been in contact with had tested positive so he had to isolate (as most others have to, but professional footballers obviously have a slightly different regime).

    There is an incubation period so you might test negative and then develop symptoms after the test as I understand it but after the incubation period that should work. I think the rules around track and trace might not be that sophisticated though.

    I was under the impression that testing (at least the level of sophisticated testing employed by the professional footballing community, was able to pick up infection more or less immediately (and definitely before anyone necessarily becomes symptomatic), hence why staff and players are tested as frequently as they are (something like daily or something like that), so they can be excluded before passing on to team mates etc. Anyway, would like to see him back, but much more desiring of a good performance against Palace, whoever is in the team!

    So that's something else we can add to the expensive pointless load of bollox list we have to pay for at a later date then.
