Gudja United have suspended their first-team training with immediate effect after a sudden burst of COVID-19 cases at the Premier League club.
In a statement, the southerners said that the cases emerged five days after first-team training was halted for the Christmas recess.
“Gudja United FC is suspending indefinitely first team training with immediate effect because several players tested positive for COVID-19,” the club said.
“The cases emerged five days after first-team training had stopped and the club is taking all precautions, including fumigating all their premises. The club is also in constant contact with the Malta Football Association to receive guidance on the way ahead.”
Following this development it is likely that Gudja United’s upcoming matches against Hibernians, on January 5, and Gżira United, four days later, will be postponed to a later date.
