The Red Devils boss regretted allowing his players to travel to Dubai.
head coach Casey Stoney has apologized after some of the team's players travelled to Dubai for the Christmas holidays and claimed responsibility.
The match between Manchester United and Everton in the Women's Premier League was the third match of this league that was suspended due to several Everton players' positive test. However, the Toffees' coach stated that the last test of the club's players was negative. However, Estonia claimed that it was wrong to allow its players to travel abroad and claimed responsibility for the mistake.
“I said before Christmas that I will always take my players’ wellbeing into consideration and I granted permission for my players to go home and see their families to have a break," Stoney told the press on Friday.
"On reflection, I do trust my players wholeheartedly to stick within government guidelines, everything we allowed them to do was within government guidelines, but I have to be honest and on reflection it was a poor error in judgement from me. I am sincerely sorry for that.
"The buck starts with me and it stops with me so I am sorry for that. Everything was considered as a club in terms of the players’ needs. That’s why it was approved. I’m human and I make mistakes. I made a mistake and I take responsibility for it.”
