Manchester City Central can confirm that both Gabriel Jesus and Kyle Walker, as well as two City staffers, have contracted COVID-19 and will self isolate for two weeks.
We are sad to report that the City players have tested positive for COVID that has ravaged the globe this year and will now be obliged to quarantine for the next two weeks until they test negative. Two members of staff have also been infected.
Fortunately, Sergio Aguero is closing in on a return to fitness after issues with his knee following surgery in June. Joao Cancelo will be able to step in for Walker but right now the priority will be the health and safety of Jesus and Walker and the two members of staff.
City’s next game is on Boxing Day against Newcastle United.
Everyone at Man City Central sends their best wishes to the Man City duo and hope they and their families remain healthy and safe during Christmas and into the New Year.
