PSG suspends training amid coronavirus crisis

Hours after Ligue de Football Professionnel’s decision to suspend all matches in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 until further notice, several teams have already decided to halt training.

Among them is PSG, which has issued a statement on Friday to announce the club would postpone training until the coronavirus crisis is resolved.

The Parisian club, who beat Dortmund 2-0 in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie during the week to book their place in the quarter finals, has announced that it has taken all possible measures to reduce the risk of its squad and staff contracting the virus. The women's team and youth teams will also suspend training.

PSG played Wednesday’s match against Dortmund behind closed doors, while their Ligue 1 fixture against Strasbourg last weekend was suspended due to the coronavirus crisis.

Vieira’s Nice will continue training

Nice, meanwhile, is one of the few teams in Ligue 1 that has not stopped training. Les Aiglons coach, Patrick Vieira, has stated at a press conference that his side must remain fit in the case that the French championship resumes in a few weeks’ time.
