The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) on Tuesday said nine players who are part of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) provisional squad have tested positive to Covid-19.

In adherence to Covid-19 medical protocols, ZIFA said, all players and members of the technical team were tested yesterday upon their return from festive break and the nine were ruled to have tested positive.

“All the affected players have been notified and quarantined in line with World Health Organization (WHO) dictates. The players have also been advised to inform their families and contacts,” ZIFA communications and competitions manager Xolisani Gwesela said.

The association has also informed the Confederation of African Football, Sport and Recreation Commission and the City Health Department for further guidance.

“Meanwhile, ZIFA has temporarily suspended all training sessions for the CHAN team pending consultation with other stakeholders, but the team remains in camp until further notice.”
