Former Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez has announced that he has tested positive for coronavirus.
The 40-year-old, who is currently the manager of Qatari club Al Sadd, is asymptomatic and self-isolating.
“Today I won’t be able to join my team on their comeback to the official competition,” Xavi said in a statement on Instagram.
“David Prats will be there on my behalf as head of the technical staff.
“A few days ago, following the QSL protocol, I tested positive in the last COVID-19 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.”
