Xavi Hernandez test Covid-19 positive

Xavi, who renewed his contract as the manager of Qatar’s Al-Sadd on July 5, said he will self-isolate as his team prepares for the restart of the Qatar Stars League (QSL).


Xavi Hernandez, the former Barcelona and Spain midfielder, confirmed on Saturday that he had tested positive for COVID-19 but was asymptomatic.

The 40-year-old becomes the latest high-profile name in football to be diagnosed with the virus that has claimed more than 640,000 lives globally. Earlier, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi, Juventus’ Paulo Dybala, Blaise Matuidi, and Daniele Rugani had contracted the virus.

Xavi, who renewed his contract as the manager of Qatar’s Al-Sadd on July 5, said he will self-isolate as his team prepares for the restart of the Qatar Stars League (QSL).

In a club statement for Al-Sadd, the 2010 World Cup winner said, “Today I won’t be able to join my team on their comeback to the official competition. A few days ago, following the QSL protocol, I tested positive in the last COVID-19 test. Fortunately, I’m feeling ok, but I will be isolated until I am given the all-clear.”
