Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero has announced he has tested positive for coronavirus (Covid-19). 

The Argentinian, on his Twitter, said he developed symptoms following a ‘close contact’ and is following medical procedures to make a full recovery. 

“After a close contact, I've been self-isolating and the latest test I took was positive for COVID 19. I had some symptoms and I'm following the doctor's orders for recovery. Take care, everyone!” said Aguero on Twitter.

Aguero has started only three matches for Pep Guardiola’s side this season, following missing the end of last season and the start of the current one after undergoing knee surgery in June last year.

A hamstring injury in October made difficult his return to action, which was followed by episodes of knee discomfort.

Earlier this month the 32-year-old was told to isolate just as he was about to make a return to the starting line-up in Man City’s FA Cup third-round tie against Birmingham City.

Ferran Torres, Gabriel Jesus, Kyle Walker and goalkeeper Ederson are among senior City players who have had to isolate following positive cases.

After the Wednesday win against Aston Villa, City stretched their undefeated run to 16 games in all competitions, a ninth victory in a row.

Bernardo Silva scored a stunner for his first Premier League goal of the season, with Ilkay Gundogan making it 2-0 with a late penalty saw City move to second with 38 points, two behind derby rivals Manchester United with a game in hand.
