Pep Guardiola afraid international break will cause more coronavirus chaos in Prem – undoing recent progress

PEP GUARDIOLA fears next month’s international break could spark more Covid chaos in the Premier League.

The top flight recorded just two positive results from the latest tests.

But Manchester City boss Guardiola is worried the progress made could be undone when players head off to their national teams.

He said: “I think the Premier League should be concerned about this.

“The people are going to travel, the players are going to the national teams and it’s difficult afterwards to control it.

“So I think something is going to rise, unfortunately.”

City — who have Kevin De Bruyne back from injury — visit Everton on Wednesday for a clash postponed because of a Covid outbreak at the Etihad.

Guardiola added: “I would love to say it’s not going to happen but from experience it happened in two or three waves already worldwide.

“If you move, you take a risk to be contaminated, to get the virus again.

“The reason why there were a lot of cases in the Premier League and now there are none is because people don’t move.

“The moment you take planes and go places, everything can happen.”
