Danny Ings tested positive for Covid-19 and may have been contagious, earlier this month when he scored the winning goal against Liverpool on Monday 4 January, confirmed Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhüttl.

The England striker is in the 10th day of isolation (on Thursday) and will likely miss Saturday’s game at Leicester.

In their last game Ings scored against his old club with a brilliant lob early, but having returned a positive test shortly after the game Hasenhüttl says he may have been carrying coronavirus. Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy missed the match, as he also had Covid-19.

“In the game, maybe he (Ings) was contagious, I think you can be 48 hours before a positive test,” he said.

“We had no further positive tests so far, so that means that the protocols we are sticking to, that we really follow in a very disciplined way, are definitely good.”

“That’s the reason why the Premier League decided to let us play football. For me, part of football is a duel, part of football is celebrating when you score a goal, and I think the protocols and the experience we made so far shows that it works”.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
