PSG Stars Neymar, Di Maria And Paredes Test Positive For Coronavirus

 

Paris Saint-Germain trio Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes have all tested positive for coronavirus, according to reports in France.

The Ligue 1 club confirmed on Wednesday that three players returned a positive Covid-19 result and L’Equipe later revealed who the unfortunate players were, with the trio understood to have all enjoyed a recent holiday in Ibiza.

“Three Paris Saint-Germain players have confirmed positive Sars CoV2 tests and are subject to the appropriate health protocol,” the club said in a statement.

“All of the players and coaching staff will continue to undergo tests in the coming days.”

Although the Ligue 1 season has kicked off, PSG have yet to begin their campaign as they have been given a break following their run to last month’s Champions League final, where they were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich.

The French champions on Monday said that two of their players had tested positive for the virus and gone into quarantine.

Although the Ligue 1 season has kicked off, PSG have yet to begin their campaign as they have been given a break following their run to last month’s Champions League final, where they were beaten 1-0 by Bayern Munich.

Founded in 1970, PSG won their first major honour, the French Cup, in 1982 and their maiden Ligue 1 title in 1986.

The 1990s was among the most successful periods in PSG’s history; they claimed their second league crown, three French Cups, two League Cups, two French Super Cups and, most notably, the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in 1996.

After suffering a decline in fortunes during the 2000s, the club have enjoyed a revival since 2011 with increased financial backing; they have clinched seven league titles and eighteen national cups.

They have achieved unparalleled dominance in domestic competitions. In 2020, the club reached the UEFA Champions League final for the first time, losing to Bayern Munich.
