A Trabzonspor player tested positive for the novel coronavirus on Friday, the Turkish football club announced.

The Black Sea club said on Twitter that one of its players tested positive for the virus after he showed COVID-19 symptoms.

The club added that the player – whose name was not given – is now confined at home for isolation and treatment.

Trabzonspor’s first team players will gather at the club premises on Aug. 17 to prepare for the new season and will be tested in groups.

This June, Turkey’s top-tier Super Lig resumed play after a three-month break due to the coronavirus pandemic, playing at empty stadiums and using a host of safety measures to protect everyone involved.
