EFL chiefs launched a Covid probe after Norwich match winning goal scorer Max Aarons hugged a fan at Carrow Road according to Martin Lipton in The Sun
The Canaries much sought after young right back Aarons grabbed the home fan — breaching coronavirus regulations — after scoring what proved to be the decisive goal in the 84th minute of their 2-1 win over Tony Pulis' Sheffield Wednesday.
An EFL spokesman said: “Every club was told about the importance of following Covid regulations and we need to get to the bottom of this very quickly.
“We will expect a full explanation from Norwich and the players involved.”
All clubs were made aware of the requirement to follow coronavirus regulations as a condition of being allowed to restart football in the summer"
Those rules were reinforced ahead of the return of fans to stadiums and Championship leaders Norwich City were allowed 2,000 into Carrow Road for the game on Saturday for the first time since lockdown in March.
Aarons’ hug may be a breach of the Sports Ground Safety Authority rules which all professional clubs are mandated to follow.
