Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is in isolation since coming into touch with someone who tested positive for coronavirus.
Pep Guardiola said in the FA Cup for Manchester City versus Birmingham City Sergio Aguero did not appear as he had to self-isolate.
Later boss Guardiola confirmed that despite returning a negative COVID-19 test, 32-year-old Aguero is isolating himself.
“Unfortunately, he was in contact more than usual with one person who is positive,” Guardiola said after the match. “He must isolate for a few days.”
“I don’t know exactly because he has been tested like all of us six times in the last 10-15 days so it is negative. Today I think he was negative too but the protocols say in some cases isolate, and in other cases, we still play football.”
“He was not able to play today.”
