The 32-year-old player, who currently plies his trade in China, took to his Twitter page to disclose that he is currently in isolation at Jinan hospital which specializes in infectious diseases.

The footballer, who formerly wears an afro and now plays for Shandong Luneng in the Chinese super league, stated his hopes of a quick “return to the game.”

“Dear friends, I have been tested for coronavirus and my test result is positive. Thanks to the fans, medical staff and the club for their care and attention. I will follow the treatment and hope to return to the game as soon as possible. Please everyone stay safe,” his post read.

His club further released a statement confirming the report and stating that the former Everton man is recovering in quarantine.

“The official test confirmed that the player Fellaini has tested positive for coronavirus during the quarantine observation period,” the statement read.

“During this period, the player’s body temperature has been normal and there are no other discomforts. He has received further observation and treatment at a designated medical institution.”

China, where COVID-19 started from, has recorded over 80,000 cases of the global pandemic. It has also reported very few cases in recent days as the country seems to have stemmed the tide of the virus spread.
