Another Super Eagles player Samuel Kalu has tested positive for coronavirus just one week after Paul Onuachu contracted the virus.
The 22-year-old Nigeria international has been in quarantine in France since returning from holidays from home nation Nigeria.
According to AFP claim that Kalu is the Bordeaux player who has contracted coronavirus despite the Ligue 1 outfit not disclose the name of the infected star when they made the announcement.
The news comes after Genk striker Onuachu also tested positive for the virus on his return to Belgium from Nigeria but the former Midtjylland star has recovered fully.
Kalu will miss Bordeaux’s training sessions since the opening of camp and might be left out of some of the club’s pre-season games but the Super Eagles winger is expected to rejoin his teammate on July 27 if his test returned negative.
Kalu had a below-par season for Bordeaux last season after scoring just one goal and recording one assist in 20 league games.
