Thiago tests positive for coronavirus and will miss Liverpool clash with Aston Villa

Paul Joyce, Northern Football Correspondent
Tuesday September 29 2020, 6.31pm, The Times

Thiago Alcantara has become the latest footballer to test positive for coronavirus and will now miss Liverpool’s trip to Aston Villa on Sunday.

The midfielder was also absent for Monday night’s victory over Arsenal due to the illness and is currently self isolating.

Alcantara’s positive result comes in addition to the ten cases announced by the Premier League on Monday evening following their latest round of testing.

Liverpool arranged an additional test for the 29-year-old after he complained of feeling unwell and displayed symptoms associated with coronavirus.

The Anfield club’s policy has been, and remains, to protect individual medical confidentiality with regard to covid-19 testing unless an individual wanted the diagnosis to be made public.

Alcantara, who was signed from Bayern Munich for £20 million 11 days ago, has chosen to waive his right to anonymity in a move which may help break down any stigma attached to contracting the virus.

It appears unlikely that he will be included in the Spain squad for games in Portugal on October 7, at home to Switzerland [October 10] and away to Ukraine [October 13].

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp had said that Alcantara was not “fit enough” to be involved against Arsenal and expected the player to be available again after the international break. That match will see the champions travel to buoyant neighbours Everton for the Merseyside derby on the weekend of October 17.

Alcantara made his Liverpool debut as a substitute in the 2-0 victory over Chelsea just 48-hours after his move from Bayern had been sealed and has been immediately hailed as giving Klopp’s squad an added dimension.

Manchester City players Riyad Mahrez, Aymeric Laporte and Ilkay Gundogan are among the other top-flight players who have tested positive this month, while West Ham United manager David Moyes will be again be absent from the touchline for Wednesday’s Carabao Cup tie with former club Everton.

Moyes has been working from home since testing positive for coronavirus last week and could return to the club on Thursday should he now test negative.

Liverpool’s Thiago tests positive for COVID-19

29 September 2020Updated 18:31 BST

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara has tested positive for COVID-19, reports James Pearce.

The summer signing from Bayern Munich missed the Premier League win over Arsenal on Monday, with Liverpool revealing his positive test a day later.

When did Thiago test positive for COVID-19?

Thiago trained as normal on Friday, with one onlooker telling The Athletic that the Spain international was looking particularly sharp.

However, he did not train with the rest of the team on Saturday and was left out of the 3-1 win over Arsenal at Anfield.

His positive test was announced by the club on Monday evening. "Thiago has minor symptoms of the virus but is in good health and is getting better," the club said in a short statement.

Why was the result made public?

Liverpool's policy throughout the pandemic has been to protect the medical confidentiality of their players. However, if an individual wanted to make their test results public they would faciliate that, as was the case with Thiago.

First-team doctor, Dr Jim Moxon, told the club's website: “It is the choice of each individual whether they reveal publicly the outcome of a COVID-19 test.

“We have followed all the protocols to the letter and Thiago is OK.

Adam Brown, also known as lynchpin poster 'Liverpool' on Est1892, knew ages ago. He told The Athletic: "I knew ages ago."

When will he return?

Ahead of the Arsenal match Klopp said that Thiago had “a minor fitness issue”.

“After the international break he will be fine, for sure,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “That’s the situation in the moment. He is not fit enough to be involved today, but that’s it.”

He will now self-isolate for 10 days, which means he could still feature against Everton in the Merseyside derby on October 17.

What is the situation in the Premier League?

On Monday 10 people returned positive results in the Premier League’s latest round of COVID-19 testing.

The tests were conducted on players and staff last week and returned the highest number of cases in a single round since the new season began this month.

The league said the individuals who had tested positive for the virus would now self-isolate.

Yes, great news. Misses stupid internationals and it's not even an injury. Fantastic. Can't wait to see him against Everton.

Incredibly sad. Hopefully these numbers fall soon. Thankfully the major injury record for premier league footballers is still zero.

For an awfully long time now, United’s executive team has been severely criticised for a perceived failure to recruit at the highest level. A leading European agent says: “The problem of United is they do not have a clear sport strategy. When you talk to United, you are not talking to football people. This is a pity because they are such a big club, such a historical club.”

As things stand, Woodward’s lead negotiator Matt Judge is at the forefront but during conversations with numerous intermediaries in recent days, there has been an overwhelming consensus that United would perform better if they hired a best-in-class sporting director. The Athletic has been told that several players feel the club “did not fight to the death” to enhance the squad for Solskjaer this summer and that the “sporting direction” at the top of the club has too often been inconsistent in recent years.

Sources say it is the case that United were outmanoeuvred by Liverpool to secure Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich, as the Merseyside club’s approach, spearheaded by sporting director Michael Edwards and head coach Jurgen Klopp, clearly detailed how the midfielder would enhance his new team and provide a vital new weapon as the champions seek to evolve.

They're such a mess off the field. Once again the parallels to our downfall are all there to see

As for Thiago I'm so excited to see him play again. Feels like an age since his 45 minute epic little cameo against Chelsea! I think having him, Henderson and hopefully Matip back will make a huge, huge difference.

I'd definitely throw him straight in against Everton if he's back to 100% post covid.

With Bobby back late from internationals, I wouldn't mind seeing a 4231 against Arse Everton. Thiago & Hendo/Fab holding, with Mane and Jota flanking Mo in the middle.

Would also love Shaq or Jones in the CAM role, but that's probably a stretch.

Regardless of the effort made by the respective clubs who the fuck would rather play under Ole than Jurgen?

Yeah Ole has zero draw and United who has been a flagging club in recent years only have money as their draw which will attract some or a certain type of player. We've never been so attractive to play for.

He can. There is no evidence of being immuned to it.

He’s outside on a deserted street, so I’d say he’s safe enough either way.

With very close hand experience of it at home and several serious cases that doctors haven't got a fookng clue about what's happening to my daughter, and the effects on the rest of us, I'll go with my own experiences until the medical community catches up.
