Marinakis is understood to have made contact with Forest Squad in the dressing room last Friday before the team’s 3-0 defeat to Millwall.

In Italy, Europe’s most affected country, the government have placed more than 16 million people under quarantine and suspended all sporting activities in the country including the serie A, due to the pandemic virus.

Meanwhile, Marinakis, who also owns Olympiakos will not be able to attend matches for two weeks due to the government’s advice to self-isolate for at least two weeks.
