ONE player missed the past weekend’s Chibuku Super Cup round two of matches after testing positive for Covid-19.

In a statement issued on Monday, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) said the player has since gone into self-isolation in accordance with the Ministry of Health and Child Care, World Health Organisation (WHO), Sports and Recreation Commission, Zifa and the PSL’s guidelines and protocols.

“The Premier Soccer League can confirm that following the latest round of Covid-19 testing for Match Day Two conducted, one player tested positive for Covid-19. The player was therefore, not part of Match Day Two activities. The PSL remains in contact with the relevant health authorities in implementing the Covid-19 protocols to enable our fixtures to be played as scheduled. We urge the clubs and all our stakeholders to strictly adhere to the Covid-19 protocols to prevent the spread of the virus,” reads the PSL statement.

The PSL wished the player a speedy recovery but indicated that it would not provide specific details about the player or his club. Although the PSL would not name the player or his team, the identity of the player is known to Chronicle Sport and sources said he tested positive after a senior member of the club’s executive committee visited the team’s training ground with a stranger in violation of standing rules that prohibit visitors from the training ground.- Chronicle
