Millwall have confirmed that a number of senior club representatives are ‘self-isolating’ after coming into contact with the Nottingham Forest owner who has contracted the coronavirus.

Lions Directors met with Evangelos Marinakis during the sides fixture on Friday night, before the 52-year-old Greek owner revealed on social media he had contracted the virus upon returning to his homeland yesterday.

“The recent virus has 'visited' me and I felt obliged to let the public know,” Marinakis posted on Instagram.

“'I feel good as I take all the necessary measures and I discipline to the doctors' instructions. I strongly advice (sic) all my fellow citizens to do the same.

“I wish all a quick recovery.”

It’s thought Marinakis met with his entire squad before the fixture which could plunge Forest’s remaining games in doubt with the possibility of a two week isolation period for the players.
