Former Barcelona star Xavi Hernandez has tested positive for coronavirus and will take a break from managing Qatari club Al-Sadd.

The 40-year-old former midfielder, who won the World Cup and two European championships with Spain, revealed news of his positive test ahead of Al-Sadd’s home game with Al-Khor.

“Today I won’t be able to join my team on their comeback to the official competition,” Xavi wrote on Al-Sadd’s Twitter account. Reserve team coach David Prats will deputise.

“A few days ago, I tested positive in the last Covid-19 test.

“Fortunately, I’m feeling okay, but I will be isolated until I am given the all-clear.

“When the health services allow it, I will be very eager to return to my daily routine and to work.”
