Liverpool's Sadio Mane tests positive for Coronavirus


Liverpool FC forward, Sadio Mane, has tested positive for coronavirus and is currently self-isolating.

The English club broke news of the Senegalese professional player’s COVID-19 status in a statement on Friday night.

Mane, the reigning African footballer of the year, is expected to be out of action for 10 days.

The 28-year-old becomes the second Liverpool’s player to have tested positive for COVID after Thiago Alcantara.

“Sadio Mane has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently self-isolating according to the necessary guidelines,” the statement read.

“The forward, who started and scored in Monday’s 3-1 victory over Arsenal, has displayed minor symptoms of the virus but feels in good health overall.

“However, like with Thiago Alcantara, Liverpool Football Club are – and will continue to – follow all protocols relating to COVID-19 and Mane will self-isolate for the required period of time.”

Mane has been in fine form this season, scoring both goals in Liverpool’s win over Chelsea.
