Ghana international, Jordan Ayew has tested positive for Coronavirus after Crystal Palace’s manager, Roy Hodgson confirmed the news on Sunday.
Hodgson revealed this to journalists following Palace’s 1-1 draw with Brighton in the Premier League.
Ayew, 29, did not make the team for the clash against Brighton and it seems his positive test for COVID-19 is the reason behind his omission from the team list.
Sadly, I have tested positive for Covid-19 & have begun my quarantine in line with the health guidance.
Thankfully, I am feeling fine & do not have any symptoms 🙏🏾
I will be cheering the boys on from home & look forward to being back on the pitch soon 💪🏽🔴🔵
Stay safe 🙌🏾♥️
