Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been diagnosed with the coronavirus following his return to China, the Belgian’s Chinese Super League club Shandong Luneng announced on their official website on Sunday.
Fellaini, who joined Shandong last January from the English Premier League side, returned to the country on Friday and was placed in immediate 14-day self-isolation upon his arrival in the city of Jinan where he was then tested.nfl cheap jerseys nike
A statement read: “The official test confirmed that Fellaini tested positive for the coronavirus during his quarantine observation period. The player’s body temperature has been normal and he is comfortable. He has received further treatment at a designated medical institution.
“The club will do its best to cooperate and provide help for the player’s treatment and rehabilitation, and wishes for his swift recovery.
“Fellaini has expressed his gratitude to the fans and his friends at the club, adding that he will get better soon and be stronger than ever when he returns.”
Chinese football has been hit hard by the outbreak, with the start of the Chinese Super League pushed back indefinitely from its intended Feb. 22 start date.
Juventus and Argentina forward Paulo Dybala has tested positive but has no symptoms, the Serie A club said on Saturday, making him the third Juve player to be infected so far. Fellow Juventus teammates Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi both tested positive for the virus earlier this month.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap
Former AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini and his son Daniel, a player for the same club, have both contracted the coronavirus, while the former president of Real Madrid, Lorenzo Sanz, has died at the age of 76 after contracting the virus.
Fellaini scored 22 goals in 177 appearances for Manchester United, from 2013-19. His former club, along with Manchester City, have donated £100,000 between themselves to help the vulnerable during the pandemic.
