The midfielder of Albanian origin of Arsenal has tested positive for coronavirus. The 28-year-old was not part of the players in the match against Greece, in the international friendly match in Basel this Wednesday.

Granit Xhaka was tested in the morning due to the symptoms of the virus he had experienced. The player of the Swiss National Team will probably not play in the match with Italy on Sunday either. He was isolated immediately after symptoms, and after the pre-match PCR test he tested positive.

A Swiss staff member has also entered quarantine following suspicions that he has been infected. It is not yet known if Xhaka was vaccinated with two doses of coronavirus, but Swiss media write that he will undergo another test the next day.
