Manchester City have confirmed that Ilkay Gundogan has tested positive for coronavirus following the recent round of testing.
The midfielder is observing a 10-day period of self-isolation in accordance with Premier League and UK Government protocol on quarantine.
Gundogan is likely to miss three matches for City while he self-isolates, including Monday’s Premier League clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers, live on Sky Sports, as well as Thursday’s Carabao Cup game against Bournemouth and Sunday’s league game against Leicester City.
The German is the third player of Pep Guardiola’s squad to test positive for the virus, following winger Riyad Mahrez and defender Aymeric Laporte.
Both players returned to training last week but City boss Guardiola said only Mahrez would be available against Wolves.
The 29-year-old is a regular starter in City’s midfield and made 49 appearances in all competitions last term as well as being a key part of the treble-winning side the year before.
