Sevilla’s Gudelj Tests Positive For Coronavirus As Europa League Clash With Roma Looms

Sevilla have confirmed a member of their first-team squad has tested positive for coronavirus, later revealed to be Serbia international Nemanja Gudelj.

The player was tested on Sunday along with coaching staff and the rest of the first-team squad, before the results were returned on Monday.

Gudelj, who chose to waive anonymity in order to send a message to fans on Wednesday, is asymptomatic and self-isolating at home, though the club immediately suspended training sessions.

“Good afternoon everybody, after confirming my positive Covid-19 test I want to tell you all that I am perfectly fine, I have no symptoms,” the former Ajax midfielder explained in a video released on his official Twitter page.

“I hope to be back with my team-mates soon and help the club reach its goals at the end of this season.

“Thanks for all your messages of support, we are still here training and we’ll see you soon.”

Two further tests have since been carried out on the rest of the squad and the coaching staff.
