Former Manchester City and Everton defender Eliaquim Mangala is one of five Valencia players and coaching staff to have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
It was announced on Sunday morning that Mangala’s Valencia team-mate Ezequiel Garay became the first La Liga player to test positive for the virus.
Later, it emerged five Valencia players and coaches were put under self-isolation after testing positive.
Mangala has confirmed he tested positive for the virus and said: “I knew today that I am coronavirus positive.
“I’m feeling good and I have no symptoms associated with the virus. However, I am confined in house and separated from my family.
“I learned that we can carry the virus without having symptoms, that’s why I recommend everyone to follow the confinement measures and avoid contact with other people, as much as possible, even if you feel well.”
