Manchester City duo Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez have tested positive for Covid-19.
City announced that both players have been forced to self-isolate for the next two weeks in a statement on their official website on Monday, which reads: “Manchester City FC can confirm that Riyad Mahrez and Aymeric Laporte have tested positive for Covid-19.
“Both players are currently observing a period of self-isolation in accordance with Premier League and UK Government protocol on quarantine. Neither is displaying symptoms of the virus.
“Everyone at the Club wishes Riyad and Aymeric a speedy recovery ahead of their return to training and the new season.”
Pep Guardiola will welcome Laporte and Mahrez back into his squad before City’s 2020-21 season opener against Wolves on September 21, but their participation could be in doubt due to a potential lack of match fitness.
