Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed that three players and one member of staff have tested positive for coronavirus.

The Ligue 1 champions, who were crowned in April after the remainder of season was cancelled and positions decided on a points-per-game basis because of the coronavirus pandemic, are due to return to training ahead of the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue finals and the resumption of the Champions League.

Thomas Tuchel’s men are through to the last eight of the Champions League, which will be finished in a tournament in Lisbon in August.

They sealed a place in the quarter-finals of the European competition prior to the season’s interruption in March at the expense of Borussia Dortmund, joining Atalanta, Atletico Madrid and RB Leipzig as one of the four teams who have already advanced from the last-16 stage. 

The club carried out on the tests that confirmed the cases on Monday, June 22, 2020.

A statement from PSG read: “These individuals had exhibited symptoms during the confinement period when they were not in contact with each other.”

“They are no longer contagious and will resume their training program.”

PSG are scheduled to resume training in small groups on Thursday, June 25, 2020.
