Chelsea’s Havertz Tests Positive For Coronavirus


Chelsea German midfielder Kai Havertz has tested positive for coronavirus and is self-isolating.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard confirmed Havertz’s positive test ahead of their Champions League match against Rennes on Wednesday evening.

“It’s significant because he’s tested positive for Covid in the testing going into this game,” Lampard told BT Sport .

“So he’s come away from the squad, he’s in isolation as the doctor’s orders are and we move on. He isolates for that period and we’re wishing him well at home.

“Everybody has been tested as a whole squad since and we have negative tests, so it’s hopefully a case of we’re taking, everyone is negative and we move on in the short term.”

Havertz’s positive test comes just hours before England goes into a four-week lockdown, during which elite sport has been given the green light to continue.

The 21-year-old Germany international joined Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen in September and has started in all of the club’s Premier League and Champions League fixtures so far this season.

Chelsea didn’t confirm exactly when Havertz entered isolation, but he would appear set to miss Saturday’s Premier League clash with Sheffield United.

His participation in Germany’s upcoming fixtures could also be in doubt, with Joachim Low’s side hosting the Czech Republic in a friendly in a week’s time, before Nations League matches against Ukraine and Spain.
