Xavi Hernandez, a former Barcelona legend and current manager of Qatari club Al Sadd, said on Saturday that he tested positive for novel coronavirus.

“I tested positive in the last COVID19 test. Fortunately, I’m feeling ok, but I will be isolated until I am given the all clear,” Xavi said on social media.

“When the health services allow it, I will be very eager to return to my daily routine and to work.”

Former Spanish international player Xavi has been serving as the manager of Al Sadd since May 2019.
