And it looks like thing will continue to be full of surprises as Brendan Rodgers has revealed that three of his players are showing symptoms of the dreaded coronavirus
Speaking to the national press in England ahead of his side's Premier League game against Watford, Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers shared the news that three players are showing symptoms of coronavirus and have been siolated.
Though the identities of the three Foxes have not been disclosed, for precautionary reasons all remaining players will again be tested. Initial tests had cleared both Ndidi and Iheanacho but as they say, its better to be safe than sorry.
A grim face Rodgers advised at his press conference that :
"We've had a few players who have shown symptoms and signs," Rodgers told reporters at his pre-match press conference on Thursday.
"We’ve self-isolated them and we’ll see how that develops. We’ve had three players."
Meanwhile, speculation is rife that Premier League matches could hold behind closed doors starting from this weekend to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
In any case, should the Foxes clash against the Hornets go ahead and both Nigerian stars are cleared medically it is expected that they will both play. They have also been invited for the months-end Afcon 2021 qualifier between Nigeria and Sierra Leone in Asaba.
