Paris St-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino has tested positive for the coronavirus and will miss the next two league games.

Pochettino took over earlier this month and won a trophy in only his third game in charge when PSG beat Marseille to win the Trophee des Champions.

PSG faces Angers on Saturday in Ligue 1 and Montpellier on January 22.

The team released a statement and confirmed the positive test:

“He will therefore respect isolation and is subject to the appropriate health protocol. His assistants Jesus Perez and Miguel D’Agostino will take over from him in Angers.”
