 Liverpool Forward, Sadio Mane Isolating After Positive Coronavirus Test

Liverpool and Senegalese forward Sadio Mane has tested positive for coronavirus and is self-isolating.

The news comes three days after the club said midfielder Thiago Alcantara had also tested positive for Covid-19.

Liverpool say the Senegal winger had “displayed minor symptoms of the virus but feels in good health overall”.

Mane, 28, played for the Reds in a 3-1 win over Arsenal on Monday but was not in the squad for the EFL Cup defeat on penalties to the Gunners on Thursday.
