An Brighton player has tested positive for Coronavirus but is now feeling alot better, revealed chief executive Paul Barber. Three Seagulls players underwent tests after showing symptoms of Covid-19, with one returning positive.\r\n\r\nBarber, who was unwilling to name the individual, said he is "getting the care he needs" and testing was only being done "when symptoms emerged".\r\n\r\nThe Brighton squad is currently on an unscheduled hiatus due to the emergence of the novel Coronavirus which halted the English Premier League until further notice.\r\n\r\nBrighton are 15th in the Premier League, two points above the relegation zone with nine games remaining.\r\n\r\nBarber was appearing alongside manager Graham Potter in a news conference which took place via video link.\r\n\r\nPotter feels the work being done on the mental side by his players is more important than what is happening on the physical side during the coronavirus stoppage.\r\n\r\nKnowing the lockdown that was coming, Potter and his staff allowed the Brighton players to "empty the gym" to give them something to work on at home.\r\n\r\nNew technology means they can do squad sessions on exercise bikes and work on gym mats in an effort to maintain fitness even though, essentially, they are stuck at home virtually all day like everyone else in the country.\r\n\r\nCrucially though, Brighton are also using a psychologist.\r\n\r\nThe Seagulls took the decision to keep all their players in the UK rather than let them fly home - and Potter feels looking after their mental wellbeing is hugely important at the present time.\r\n\r\n"If anything the mental side is the priority at the moment," he said.\r\n\r\n"It is a global crisis. The economy of this country is in lockdown. We know people are struggling on the front line.\r\n\r\n"Some of the players are away from their families and they are missing them. Even if they went home, they couldn't really go and visit them because everyone is on lockdown but we need to be aware of that. We have a psychologist working at the club to give extra support.\r\n\r\n"Isolation is not something that is easy for human beings to do but we are in this position and we have to look after each other."\r\n\r\nPotter, his wife and three children have been in isolation after his wife had flu-like symptoms last week.\r\n\r\nIt has left him trying to juggle home schooling with being a Premier League manager, although not in any normal sense.\r\n\r\n"We can still do our jobs, just not the jobs we would do in a normal circumstance," he said.\r\n\r\n"We have group training sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. I go into those. I have also been speaking to all the players one-to-one.\r\n\r\n"The truth is it is impossible to be a football coach at the moment. But you have to use the situation as positively as you can.\r\n\r\n"We can still keep the players fit and active. We can still look after them and check their welfare. We can still speak as a coaching group. We can still analyse and prepare for games."
