Manchester United winger Facundo Pellistri has tested positive for Covid-19, ruling him out of making his senior debut against Watford on Saturday.

The 19-year-old, who signed in the summer transfer window, has not been displaying symptoms but returned a positive test, his agency confirmed. 

He must now follow the Government guidelines and isolate for 10 days.
“I think we've done well to follow the protocols as we have, we've had the odd case and Facundo Pellistri got a positive, so he reported that on his Twitter, we don't normally comment on who they are but Facundo is well and hopefully he'll be back with us soon,” manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference.“He's been with the reserves and under-23s and he wasn't really in our group over Christmas. 

Apart from that, we have a full and fit squad.”
A statement from Pellistri's agency posted on social media also confirmed the news:

 “He is doing the corresponding quarantine at home, without symptoms and complying with the physical care indicated by his club.

 We appreciate the messages received in the last hours. Soon he will be training again with his teammates.”

The whole United squad and staff are being tested twice a week and the Premier League revealed its highest number of positive tests earlier this week.
