Man City’s Gundogan tests positive for COVID-19
Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has tested positive for the rampaging COVID-19 pandemic.
The development was made public by the Premier League club on Monday, hours ahead of their first match of the new campaign.
The Germany international is now in self-isolation as the club prepares to play Wolves at Molineux.
“Ilkay is now observing a 10-day period of self-isolation in accordance with Premier League and UK government protocol on quarantine,” said a City statement.
“Everyone at the club wishes Ilkay a speedy recovery.”
Gundogan is the third City player to return a positive test this month, following Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez.
