Covid-19 keeps making a mess inside several clubs such as PSG, this time two more players just tested positive for the virus. The French giants just reported that Marco Verratti and Abdou Diallo came back with a positive PCR test in Friday’s latest round. They have been advised to remain in isolation and stay as such until they manage to defeat the virus. The club wasn’t specific as to whether any of both stars are presenting any symptoms or not.

So far, PSG only confirmed the news through a Tweet on their official account but they are expected to do the same in their other channels. “Marco Verratti y Abdou Diallo have been confirmed positive in today’s Sars-Cov2 PCR test. Therefore, they are expected to respect the confinement and they will be held to the agreed health protocol like everybody else,” wrote the club’s Community Manager.
