Manchester City striker, Sergio Aguero, has confirmed he has contracted COVID-18 and is self isolating.
Aguero, 32, had already been self-isolating due to being in close contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.
City have been hard hit by Coronavirus with 11 players and staff testing positive in recent weeks.
They were forced to postpone a Premier League match with Everton in late December.
Aguero has had a frustrating season making just three starts due to a series of injury problems.
“After a close contact, I’ve been self-isolating and the latest test I took was positive for Covid-19,”
“I had some symptoms and I’m following doctor’s orders for recovery. Take care, everyone!”
City have prospered despite his absence, their 2-0 win in the Premier League over Aston Villa on Wednesday being their ninth successive win in all competitions.
