Man United full back Telles diagnosed with COVID-19
LONDON (UK) – Manchester United defender Alex Telles has tested positive for COVID-19. He has showed no symptoms and is likely to return to action soon, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said.
Telles couldn’t be part of the weekend’s goalless draw with Chelsea and was absent from United’s matchday squad for Wednesday’s 5-0 Champions League win over RB Leipzig.
Solskjaer told reporters on Wednesday, “Telles has tested positive for coronavirus so he’s been out for a few days. No symptoms though, so he’ll be fine. Back soon.”
The Brazilian full back thanked fans for their support.
He said on Instagram, “I want to say that I am fine, isolated and soon I will be back with all my strength to help my team mates.”
