Epakis tests positive for COVID-19

Perth Glory can confirm that the club’s Liberty A-League Head Coach, Alex Epakis, has tested positive for COVID-19.

He is currently self-isolating in accordance with directives from NSW Health and will not travel with the group to Sunday’s game against Newcastle Jets at No.2 Sportsground.

Assistant Coach Stef Busso will take temporary charge of coaching duties in Alex’s absence.

The health and well-being of the players and staff remains the number one priority for both the club and A-Leagues.
