STOKE, England (AP) — Ireland international James McClean was suspended by English second-division club Stoke for allegedly breaching coronavirus regulations by training in a private gym.
There will be a disciplinary hearing into McClean’s conduct, Stoke said late Thursday.
The 31-year-old McClean, who tested positive for COVID-19 in November while on international duty, will not be available for selection for Saturday’s game against Blackburn.
Indoor gyms are currently closed in Britain during the pandemic.
