COVID19: Neymar tests positive

PSG star Neymar has reportedly tested positive for coronavirus, with the Ligue 1 club confirming that three players have contracted the virus so far.

Although the Ligue 1 champions and Champions League finalists did not name the players involved, Angel Di Maria, 32, and Leandro Paredes, 26, are believed to be the other two players to have tested positive, as reported by French outlet L’Equipe.

After losing in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich on August 23, all three players had spent time on holiday on the Spanish island of Ibiza.

‘Three PSG players are confirmed positive after a Sars CoV2 test and have undergone the appropriate health protocols,’ the club said on social media.

‘All players and staff will continue to be tested over the next few days.’

All three players will now spend time in quarantine – the first PSG fixture of the new season is in eight days’ time, on September 10 against Lens.

Manchester United star Paul Pogba also tested positive for coronavirus alongside Tottenham midfielder Tanguy Ndombele while meeting up for international duty with France last Thursday. The pair are now isolating for 14 days.

Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Fikayo Tomori were placed into isolation after a break to Mykynos in Greece.

A total of 14 positive tests were recorded from the 12 Premier League clubs who returned to training ahead of the new season two weeks ago.
