COVID-19: Super Eagles Samuel Kalu tests positive


Super Eagles forward Samuel Kalu who plays for Ligue 1 side Bordeaux has been in quarantine after he tested positive for coronavirus.

Kalu was subjected to a coronavirus test when he arrived in Bordeaux from Nigeria and was found to have contracted the virus.

Super Eagles striker Paul Onuachu tested positive for coronavirus on return to pre-season with Genk but has now recovered.

Bordeaux had announced that one of their players had tested positive for the virus without mentioning the person but a report by AFP revealed that the player was Kalu.

The 22-year-old has been in quarantine and has missed Bordeaux’s training sessions since pre-season resumed.

The Nigeria international is expected to rejoin the rest of the squad on Monday, July 27, 2020, should he turn in a negative test.

Kalu spent most of his time in Nigeria after he was permitted by his club to travel following the suspension of Ligue 1 in France.

He is now the second Nigerian player to have tested positive for coronavirus after a trip to Nigeria.
