Manchester United full back Alex Telles tests positive for Covid-19
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says the defender has no symptoms and will miss ‘a few days’
Telles, who arrived at Old Trafford from Porto earlier this month, missed the weekend’s goalless draw with Chelsea and was absent from United’s matchday squad for Wednesday’s 5-0 Champions League win over RB Leipzig.
“Telles has tested positive for coronavirus so he’s been out for a few days,” Solskjaer told reporters on Wednesday. “No symptoms though, so he’ll be fine. Back soon.”
The Brazilian full back thanked fans for their support.
“I want to say that I am fine, isolated and soon I will be back with all my strength to help my team mates,” he said on Instagram.
