Bulgaria: Bulgaria: Two CSKA Football Players Test Positive for COVID-19

Two CSKA players have positive tests for COVID-19 after the mandatory PCR tests, which are performed at the beginning of each month, the club announced. These are captain Petar Zanev and striker Ahmed Ahmedov.

"The condition of the infected is stable and they are feeling well, and both have been quarantined in a timely manner," the Reds added.

All others tested in the CSKA camp were not infected with coronavirus.

Last week, Zanev was part of the national team and took part in the League of Nations match with Ireland. The defender was injured and did not play in the second meeting with Wales.

The club does not specify when the samples were taken, indicating only the "beginning of the month". On August 30, Zanev was at a camp with the Bulgarian national team.

According to the measures and prescriptions of the Bulgarian Football Union (BFU), the postponement of matches and the suspension of the championship can be reached in case of mass positive tests in the teams.
