Ligue 1 champions, Paris Saint-German (PSG) new boss, Mauricio Pochettino has contracted COVID-19 just 14 days after taking over from Thomas Tuchel at the club.

‘The coach of PSG Mauricio Pochettino is confirmed positive in the Sars-Cov2 PCR test,’ the club statement read.
‘He will therefore respect isolation and is subject to the appropriate health protocol.
‘His assistants Jesus Perez and Miguel D’Agostino will take over from tomorrow in Angers.’
