10 Footballers That Once Tested Positive To COVID-19 | See The South African Footballers In The List

The coronavirus epidemic swept the globe in 2020, and despite adhering to social distancing standards in their daily lives, numerous high-profile players and managers got the virus. Covid-19 positive players and managers include Paul Pogba, Neymar, and Paulo Dybala, as well as Mikel Arteta, Diego Simeone, and David Moyes, to name a few.

Apart from the players mentioned above, I've produced a list of top footballers who have tested positive for Covid-19 but have yet to be diagnosed.

1. Keylor Navas

Six Paris Saint-Germain players tested positive for the coronavirus soon before the start of the current French Ligue 1 season, including goalkeeper Keylor Navas. The participants were instructed to self-isolate and recover rapidly.

2. Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe tested positive to Covid-19 on September 8, 2020, prompting him to miss France's UEFA Nations League match against Croatia. He became the seventh player to contract the disease after six PSG players tested positive for the virus. Mbappe has fully recovered from his injury, although he is still not match fit.

3. Marquinhos

Long-serving defender Marquinhos, as well as six other first-team players, reported positive to Covid-19, indicating that Paris Saint-Germain had utterly failed to regulate its players' pre-season movements.

4. Paulo Dybala

Paulo Dybala, a Juventus and Argentina forward, tested positive to Covid-19 four times. Dybala was tested numerous times after stating in March that he and his partner had tested positive for coronavirus. By the end of April, he had been found Covid-19 positive four times. Since then, the attacker has avoided a fifth positive test by adhering to social distance standards.

5. Angel Di Maria

6. Paul Pogba

7. Neymar

Coronavirus was contracted by Brazilian sensation Neymar and his PSG teammates during preseason festivities in Ibiza, Spain. The fact that six first-team players tested positive in PSG's season-opening loss to RC Lens further added to the disappointment.

8. Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic tested positive for Covid-19 a day after assisting AC Milan to a Serie A victory against Bologna. The Swede netted a brace in the 2-0 victory after signing a year extension with the Azzurri.

9. Thabiso Monyane

10. Kamohelo Mahlatsi
