The Argentine defender took his social media handle to announced the new development and appeared to be terrified by the news.

Ex-Manchester City player Mangala posted: “I knew today that I am Coronavirus positive. At the moment, I’m feelling good and I have no symptoms associated with the virus. However, I am confined in house and have no contact with my family.”
A Valencia statement said the affected players and staff were “in their homes in good health and under isolation measures”.
“We are confident that with solidarity, responsibility and good spirits we will beat this pandemic,” the club added.
