Ghana football stars test positive for COVID-19

AFRICAN MIRROR REPORTER

JORDAN Ayew, Ghana’s international and Crystal Palace striker has tested positive for COVID-19 and has gone into self-isolation.

Ayew has become the third Ghana international to rest positive after spending the international break at home. Bernard Mensah, who plays for Turkish side Besiktas and Gideon Mensah, who turns out for Spanish side  Vitoria Guimares, also tested positive.

Ayew confirmed on his Twitter handle that he would be out of action for a while.

“Sadly, I have tested positive for Covid-19 & have begun my quarantine in line with health guidance.  Thankfully, I am feeling fine & do not have any symptoms.  I will be cheering the boys on from home & look forward to being back on the pitch soon. Stay safe,” he said.

His manager at Crystal Palace, Roy Hodgson sounded unimpressed by the turn of events.  Hodgson told BBC: “He has been away with Ghana, which we weren’t exactly delighted to accept that he had to do. Like several other Ghanain players, I believe when they have gone back to their clubs, they have tested positive.”
