NAPSA Stars FC head coach Mohamed Fathi has tested positive for COVID-19.
The Clubs Technical Director Honor Janza confirmed this in a statement issued by the clubs Public Relations Manager Gwen Chipasula.
Janza who is also the team’s Manager noted that the Egyptian tested positive after the team’s routine COVID-19 tests which were conducted before the week 13 MTN/ FAZ Super League game played against Red Arrows FC on Saturday.
He said Fathi is currently in isolation at home and following health guidelines set by the World Health Organization and the Ministry of Health.
“We are sad to announce that our Head Coach has tested positive for COVID-19. We do our tests every 14 days but after the coach presented some symptoms, it led to the whole team doing another test earlier than usual,” Mr. Janza explained.
And Coach Fathi has since advised his players to stay focused during this period that he is away.
“I just want to advise my players and everyone out there to keep safe and always observe the guidelines given to us by the Ministry of Health,” Fathi said.
Meanwhile, First Assistant Coach Geoffrey Hamakwenda will drill the team in the absence of Fathi who missed Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Red Arrowss and will also miss Wednesday’s clash against Forest Rangers.
