Liverpool have announced that their forward Sadio Mane has tested positive for COVID-19, making him the second Liverpool player to contract the disease after their new signing Thiago Alcantara tested positive for the same three days ago.
“Sadio Mane has tested positive for COVID-19 and is currently self-isolating according to the necessary guidelines. 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,” Liverpool said in a statement on their website.
The statement adds, “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.”
The Senegalese star, who was the joint top goal-scorer in the 2018/19 season, has already scored four goals this season. We wish him speedy recovery.
