Wolves players banned from shopping amid new coronavirus surge

Wolves also instructed their players to defend themselves during the first national lockdown in March by avoiding trips to the supermarket.

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo wants the Premier League to implement twice-weekly Covid-19 checks in England for players and workers. The club has now responded by arranging their entire squad’s shopping trips.

“We have a staff to go shopping and to the supermarkets for them,” Nuno said ahead of Sunday’s home game with Tottenham, live on Sky Sports. “We have to avoid any kind of risk because we have a small squad and we have problems with some players out.”

But Nuno is not concerned by Tottenham, who are in Tier 4 London where people are told to stay at home and not travel outside the area, visiting Molineux. “Absolutely no problems at all, I’m totally confident about that situation,” he said. “We know how strict we are with our protocols, and we are positive that all the clubs follow the same protocols.”
