West Ham director David Moyes has yet to return to work after a positive coronavirus test and is expected to be absent from Leicester on Sunday.
The 557-year-old ended a ten-day period of self-separation on Thursday after positive testing by him and two players ahead of last week’s Carabao Cup match against Hall.
However, the matter of his return has been put on hold at Alan Irwin, the assistant manager in charge of the last three matches on touchline duty at King King Stadium again.
Irwin says: “She is OK. I spoke to him this morning but he hoped he was probably.
“She is OK, but at the moment we are just following all the guidelines and protocols. He’s in contact with the club’s medical people, obviously and the Premier League.
“It simply came to our notice then.
“Obviously it is a disease that affects people very badly. This is a very serious matter, I don’t think anyone knows exactly what the full effects are and I don’t think it’s consistent – it varies from one person to another.
“So we need to think about the safety of everyone at our football club vital to stay safe and follow the protocol wherever it is.
“At the moment I think it’s very likely that he won’t be on Leicester’s touchline, but that could change today and in the days to come, so we will continue to work in his absence.
“She may not be here personally, but she is involved in what we do and is making the final decision on what we do. Whether he stays in touchline or not will continue. ”
Isa Diap and Josh Cullen, who tested positive, also returned to the club’s Rush Green training ground.
