Manchester United star Alex Telles tests positive for covid-19
Manchester United defender Alex Telles has tested positive for Covid-19, United Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
has confirmed. The Brazilian has made just one appearance for the club since signing in a £13million deal
from Porto this summer and his absence from Wednesday’s squad to play RB Leipzig left supporters worried
that he had sustained an injury.
Solskjaer says the full-back Alex Telles, who has missed the last two games, is isolating after testing positive
for Covid-19. The United boss now turns his attention to this weekend’s game against Arsenal.
It’s unclear when Telles’ isolation began but it’s unlikely that he will be able to return to the side until after the
international break, meaning he’ll miss fixtures against Arsenal, Istanbul Basaksehir, and Everton.
