Liverpool left-back Kostas Tsimikas has tested positive for Coronavirus.
After traveling to Slovenia the left-back became ill for the opening game of Greece’s Nations League, and was then quarantined.
He then had not practiced for three days with the rest of the squad. And reports have now emerged that he has Covid-19.
A release from the Federation of Hellenic Football stated that a member of the Greek national football team had tested positive. They didn’t mention the player’s name however.
Tsimikas had taken a test by UEFA before the rest of the squad did the same.
Reportedly, the results of the other tests will be released on Saturday before Greece travels from Ljubljana to Pristina ahead of its second Nations League match against Kosovo.
The 24-year-old left-back has tested positive for Covid-19 while on an international duty with Greece, according to reports from Greek outlet SPORT 24 (h / t the Daily Star).
Just a few weeks ago, he joined Liverpool from Olympiakos, as Jurgen Klopp decided to bring some back-up for Andrew Robertson at the left.
The statement read: “The Greek Football Federation was informed today of a positive COVID-19 sample on the results of checks carried out by the authorised by UEFA medical service among members of the mission of the national men’s team, which is located in Ljubljana and preparing for Sunday’s match with Kosovo in Pristina.”
