Paris Saint-Germain have announced that head coach Mauricio Pochettino has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Saturday's Ligue 1 trip to Angers SCO.
The Argentine has led the French giants to two wins from his first three matches and Wednesday's 2-1 win over Olympique de Marseille secured the Trophee des Champions -- his first piece of silverware as a boss.
Pochettino, 48, will now enter into isolation and will be subject to the standard health protocols as PSG continue their season at Stade Raymond Kopa this weekend.
