Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero self-isolating due to close contact with COVID-19 patient
Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola said that the club’s striker Sergio Aguero is self-isolating due to close contact with someone who tested positive for the COVID-19.
On Sunday, Sergio Aguero was supposed to start in his third-round FA Cup game against second-tier Birmingham City, but did not participate in the matchday squad as Manchester City sealed a 3-0 victory with 2 goals from Bernardo Silva and one from Phil Foden.
Pep Guardiola said of Sergio Aguero, who has played 9 matches in all competitions that unluckily Aguero was in close contact with one person who is tested positive, so he must undergo a few days of isolation period.
He added that he doesn’t know exactly, but Aguero has been tested 6 times in the last 10-15 days, like all of them, so it’s negative. And he thinks that this time Aguero will be tested negative too, but the Covid-19 protocols say in some cases isolate and in other cases they still play football.
