Three Arsenal Women stars who went to Dubai over the winter break have issued an apology to their teammates following one testing positive for Coronavirus on their return to the United Kingdom.

The Telegraph who broke the story of their departure to Dubai say that the three Gunners stars who are all senior internationals have issued an apology to their teammates. 

The positive case was also in contact with other members of the squad who are now required to self-isolate meaning that this weekends match at Aston Villa is postponed. 

It was reported that some members of the Arsenal team were angry at the trios decision to travel on what they called "Business trips".

Katie McCabe was one of the players who spent time in Dubai but she is not the player who has tested positive for the virus.
