Former Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez has confirmed that he tested positive for coronavirus and will be in self-isolation.
Xavi, who now manages Qatar Stars League football club ”Al Sadd” will miss his side’s return to competitive action against Al Khor tonight.
In a post on Instagram, Xavi wrote: “A few days ago, following the @qsl protocol, I tested positive in the last COVID19 test.
“Fortunately, I’m feeling ok, but I will be isolated until I am given the all-clear. When the health services allow it, I will be very eager to return to my daily routine and to work.”
The coach of the Al Sadd subsidiary team, David Prats, will take over as the club’s head coach. Once the health authorities give permission, Xavi will get back to his daily routine.
