Paul Pogba tests positive for Covid-19

French midfielder Paul Pogba has tested positive for Covid-19, according to France manager Didier Deschamps.

The 27 year old was not in the France national team squad announced on Thursday for the upcoming Nations League double-header against Sweden and Croatia.

The Manchester United player was due to be called up but instead he was replaced by 17 year old midfielder Eduardo Camavinga who plays for Rennes.

Speaking at a press conference today, Deschamps said "I’ve completed at the very last minute a change in the list, because Paul Pogba, who was previously on the list, unfortunately for him he carried out a test yesterday which was returned as positive this morning.

“So at the last moment he had to be replaced by Eduardo Camavinga.”

United said in a statement: “Pogba has been replaced in the squad after testing positive for Covid-19.

“The midfielder will be unable to add to his 69 caps and 10 goals for his country in the games next month.

“Everybody at United wishes Paul a speedy recovery ahead of the new season.”
