Few days after opening his goals account for the season, Nigerian forward David Okereke has tested positive for coronavirus.
Okereke’s Belgian team Club Brugge in a short statement on their official website on Tuesday confirmed the positive status of their Nigerian forward.
The club wrote: “Attacker David Okereke took a positive Corona test this morning. The attacker was immediately quarantined and will be retested next week.”
Okereke has thus become the third high-profile Nigeria player to test positive for Coronavirus.
Paul Onuachu of Genk and Samuel Kalu of Ligue 1 club Bordeaux also tested positive for Covid-19, but the duo have since recovered and already back in action for their respective team.
