Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has become the second player from the English Premier League champions to test positive for COVID-19.

Mane has tested positive for coronavirus, the Premier League champions have announced.

The news follows the positive test of midfielder Thiago, who is already self-isolating.

In a statement on their website, Liverpool said Mane had “displayed minor symptoms of the virus but feels in good health overall”.

“However, like with Thiago Alcantara, Liverpool Football Club are – and will continue to – follow all protocols relating to COVID-19 and Mane will self-isolate for the required period of time,” the club said.

Mane, who scored in Monday’s Premier League win over Arsenal, will therefore miss the weekend trip to Aston Villa.
