Manchester City forward Sergio Aguero has tested positive for novel coronavirus.
“After a close contact, I’ve been self-isolating and the latest test I took was positive for Covid-19,” tweeted the prolific forward on Thursday. “I had some symptoms and I’m following doctor’s orders for recovery. Take care, everyone!”
The 32-year-old has made only five appearances this season so far after coming back from a left knee injury he sustained in June last year.
Manchester City are currently placed second in the Premier League, two points behind Manchester United but with a game in hand.
Despite Aguero’s absence, City registered a 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.
They will visit West Bromwich Albion next Tuesday.
