Man City Star Aguero Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Man City Star Aguero Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has confirmed he has contracted coronavirus.

Aguero posted to Twitter that he has ‘had some symptoms’ after a positive test.

“After a close contact, I’ve been self-isolating and the latest test I took was positive for coronavirus.

“I had some symptoms and I’m following doctor’s orders for recovery. Take care, everyone!”

The 32-year-old will now miss his side’s FA Cup clash against League Two Cheltenham on Saturday.

And depending on when he tested positive, he is also likely to sit out City’s Premier League clash away at West Brom next Tuesday.

Aguero will now be self-isolating for seven days with his stunning partner Sofia Calzetti.

It’s another blow for the striker who has already missed a month of action this season with a knee injury.

Since coming back in November, he has flitted in and out of Pep Guardiola’s side as he builds up his fitness.

And now, with City looking every inch title contenders after a laboured start to the season, losing Aguero is a blow.

And depending on his recovery from the virus, it’s unclear as to how many games he could end up sitting out.

He has made only nine appearances in all competitions for City this season, scoring twice.

Aguero’s revelation comes as 38,905 more people tested positive for coronavirus in the latest government records.

There have been another 1,810 deaths, taking that grim total to 93,290 in total.
