Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has tested positive for COVID-19, the club confirmed on Friday evening.
The club wrote on her official twitter account:
Liverpool FC@LFC Sadio Mane has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently self-isolating according to the necessary guidelines.
This is happening days after teammate Thiago Alcantara tested positive for the coronavirus. Thiago missed out on Thursday night’s Carabao Cup penalty shootout in which they lost to Arsenal.
Mane is on self-isolation, and will miss Sunday evening’s trip to Aston Villa. However, the upcoming international break will give him a little time to recover without missing games for his club.
“However, like the case of Thiago Alcantara, Liverpool will continue to observe all protocols relating to COVID-19 and Mane will self-isolate for the required period of time.”
