Neymar tests positive for COVID-19
Neymar is among three Paris-Saint-Germain players reportedly tested positive for coronavirus.
According to Punchng, the Ligue 1 champions and Champions League finalists did not name the players involved, but Angel Di Maria, 32, and Leandro Paredes, 26, are believed to be the other two players to have tested positive, as reported by French outlet L’Equipe.
After losing in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich on August 23, all three players have recently spent time on holiday on the Spanish island of Ibiza.
“Three PSG players are confirmed positive after a Sars CoV2 test and have undergone the appropriate health protocols,” the club said on social media.
“All players and staff will continue to be tested over the next few days.”
All three players will now spend time in quarantine – the first PSG fixture of the new season is in eight days’ time, on September 10 against Lens.
