After the 27-year-old tests positive for coronavirus, Manchester United Defender Alex Telles thanked Red Devils fans for their messages of support.
In the United 5-0 rally of RB Leipzig in the Champions League, the former Porto man was nowhere to be seen, and Telles will also miss Sunday’s crunch match with Arsenal as he continues his time of self-isolation.
However, to reassure United fans that he is okay, the full-back has taken to social media and is looking forward to returning to the side of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer once he has recovered.
Telles said on Instagram, “Girls, I want to thank you for the messages of love I got from the moment that United revealed that I had been diagnosed with COVID-19. I want to say that I’m fine, isolated, and I’ll be back soon with all my strength to support my teammates. Once again, thank you all for your kind messages!”
Alex Telles told Manchester United fans that he was ‘fine’ despite having tested positive for coronavirus, and thanked them for their support, and promised to return as strong as ever.
Last week’s summer signing from Porto had a promising debut against PSG, but was mysteriously missing from the matchday rosters for follow-up games against Chelsea and RB Leipzig.
Speaking after United’s 5-0 victory over the Bundesliga side on Wednesday night, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer indicated that the Brazilian will need self-isolation before he returns a negative result.
‘Telles has been confirmed positive for coronavirus, he’s been out for a couple of days. No signs, he’ll be all right, back soon,’ he told MUTV.
