Paris Saint-Germain announces that 3 of its players have been infected with the Corona virus


French champions Paris Saint-Germain announced on Wednesday that 3 players in its ranks have been infected with the new Corona virus, without revealing their names.

The European runner-up wrote on his Twitter account, “3 PSG players have been confirmed to have SARS-Cove 2 and are subject to the appropriate health protocol. The players and staff will continue to conduct the checks in the coming days. ”

And thus the three players will be absent from the club’s first match in the domestic league on September 10 against Lens and perhaps the match against its guest, Marseille, on the 13th of it.

And the French capital club had previously announced, on Monday, two suspected cases of the new Corona virus among its players, without revealing their names, after they showed symptoms of the epidemic.

The local newspaper L’Equipe revealed that the players could be the Argentinians Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes, who spent their vacation on the Spanish tourist island of Ibiza after the team lost the Champions League final to Bayern Munich on August 23.

The league rules stipulate that the team’s training sessions should be canceled in the event that 4 people in its ranks are infected with the virus, with the possibility of postponing the match.

In recent weeks, several French first-division clubs have reported injuries to their players such as Lyon, Marseille, Rennes, Nantes and Montpellier.

This led to the postponement of the season-opening match between Marseille and Saint-Etienne on 21 August.
