Thiago Alcantara (29 years old), the midfielder just transferred by Liverpool from Bayern Munich, will be unavailable in the coming weeks, after being tested positive with COVID-19, announces the official website of the "cormorants".

He is currently in self-isolation and follows the protocol established by doctors and the club. The Iberian midfielder is feeling well, although he has experienced mild symptoms specific to the new type of coronavirus. He was not on the field in the match with Arsenal on Tuesday (3-1).

"It is everyone's choice to publicly announce the result of a coronavirus test. We followed the rules strictly and Thiago is OK. He will be in quarantine and we hope he will join us as soon as possible, "said Jim Moxon, Liverpool's doctor, according to the quoted source.

Alcantara a fost a doua achiziție a lui Liverpool din această vară. Crescut la celebra academie La Masia din Barcelona, Thiago juca din 2013 la Bayern, cu care a câștigat șapte titluri în Bundesliga, 4 Cupe ale Germaniei şi UEFA Champions League în sezonul recent încheiat.
