Essendon will soon find out the Court of Arbitration for Sport’s ruling on the club’s doping saga.
The CAS last month announced that its decision would be handed down anytime from Monday, January 11.
Coach John Worsfold said that the players are looking forward to getting closure, but are also anxious about the findings.
“The club’s got things in place. We’ve got people around the club that have constantly kept the players informed and talked to them and will be on hand next week as well,” he said.
“(The mood) is a combination of (anxiousness and relief that it is almost over). What we’ve talked a lot about is that they (the players) have no control over it. Let’s focus on what we can control and be positive about that. But that doesn’t take away any anxiety that they may feel.
“Hopefully next week we’ll have a finalisation to everything.
“All that’s totally out of our control – certainly out of my control – so everything for me is business as usual and then the club has contingencies in plan around any decision that’s handed down.”
