Liverpool relayed a message on behalf of former player and manager Kenny Dalglish and his family announcing he had tested positive for COVID-19.
He was tested after he was hospitalized for an infection on Wednesday. The statement said the positive test was an unexpected result since he is asymptomatic for the coronavirus. It also said Dalglish had already voluntarily self-isolated with his family and "would urge everyone to follow the relevant government and expert guidance in the days and weeks ahead."
This announcement comes after Liverpool was the subject of criticism for how they initially handled the business of the club during the coronavirus pandemic.
