Thilo Kehrer, the German international defender of Paris SG, tested positive for covid-19, announcing the club this Saturday, an hour before the start of the Ligue 1 match against Brest.
The 24-year-old national player, who played with Saint-Etienne on Wednesday (1-1), is currently the second solo player in PSG, along with Brazil Rafinha.
Kehrer will also miss the French Super Cup against Marseille in Lens on Wednesday.
Several stars of the Paris team, including Neymar, Kylian Mbappé, Keylor Navas and Ángel di María, contracted the coronavirus last September.
