Liverpool’s Guinean midfielder Naby Keita has tested positive for COVID-19, becoming the fourth Reds’ player to be infected with the virus. Fellow Liverpool players Thiago Alcantara, Sadio Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri have previously tested positive.
Keita learned he contracted COVID-19 at the Guinea National Team camp ahead of their friendly match against The Gambia.
Keita arrived in Conakry for the international break, and had to test for the virus as part of health protocols laid out by the country.
Three other Guinean national team members, Francois Kamano, Ibrahima Kone and Ibrahima Camara, also tested positive for the coronavirus.
All entered mandatory quarantine immediately.
