Crystal Palace Player Jordan Ayew Tests Positive For COVID-19.
Black stars striker Jordan Ayew has tested positive for coronavirus after returning from international duty.
Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson revealed on Sunday after the striker missed the Premier League clash against Brighton.
Jordan did not make the squad for the 1-1 draw in the M23 derby at Selhurst Park.
“Yes, he [Jordan Ayew] tested positive after returning from international duty with Ghana like many other Ghanaian players. We were quite happy for him to go but has now returned and can’t play,” Hodgson told reporters.
“I don’t know when he will return but like all, he has to follow the government guidelines so I don’t know,” he added.

Sadly, I have tested positive for Covid-19 & have begun my quarantine in line with the health guidance.
Thankfully, I am feeling fine & do not have any symptoms 🙏🏾
I will be cheering the boys on from home & look forward to being back on the pitch soon 💪🏽🔴🔵
Stay safe 🙌🏾♥️
