PSG striker Lionel Messi and three other PSG players Juan Bernat, Sergio Rico and Nathan Bitumazala tested positive for Covid-19.
Lionel Messi has tested positive for Covid-19, Paris Saint-Germain announced, just a few days after he was spotted singing and dancing at a concert in Argentina. Three other PSG players Juan Bernat, Sergio Rico, and Nathan Bitumazala have also tested positive for Covid-19.
The next match of the club will be against Vannes in the Cup, followed by a league match against Lyon on January 9.
New French regulations for isolation will require that people who test positive and have been vaccinated to isolate for 7 days rather than 10. It is likely that Messi may miss the next match.
