Piers Morgan calls Gareth Southgate ‘disgraceful’ amid positive Covid test claim

11/16/2020

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has taken to Twitter to let rip at England manager Gareth Southgate.

The outspoken TV host shared the front page of a Sunday paper which claimed Gareth, 50, tested positive for Covid-19 late October.

Furious, Piers tweeted to his 7.6 million followers he had been with Gareth just days before he allegedly tested positive but was not informed about possible contact exposure.

Piers wrote: "Hmmmm… England manager Gareth Southgate reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 on Oct 25.

"I was chatting with him on Oct 22 at ⁦GQ Heroes event, with the magazine’s editors.

"He didn’t tell any of us he tested positive 3 days later. If dates are correct, that’s disgraceful."

Not stopping there, Piers continued: "I have some questions for Gareth Southgate: 1) When exactly did you first became Covid symptomatic?

"2) Was the test on Oct25 routine or because you had symptoms?

"3) Why did you not tell people you knew who you’d been with on Oct22 that you tested positive?"

Southgate is yet to publicly respond to Piers' allegations.

One source told the publication: “He’s a professional, he just got on with it. Fortunately he’s very fit for his age.”

The report also alleges none of the England team were aware of Southgate's reported positive test result.

Southgate has since returned to work with the England team after he reportedly first recording a negative test result on November 5.

The former football player has returned further negative tests in the meantime and has been fully complying with The FA's protocols.
