Mauricio Pochettino has tested positive for Covid-19, forcing the Argentine to miss PSG's clash with Angers on Saturday less than two weeks after being appointed.

The Ligue 1 club confirmed the former Spurs boss will move into self-isolation, with assistants Jesus Perez and Miguel D’Agostino set to take over for the away trip this weekend.

Pochettino has managed three games for the Parisian superclub so far, already lifting silverware in his third match after a 2-1 victory over hated rivals Marseille in the French League Cup.

'The coach of PSG Mauricio Pochettino is confirmed positive in the Sars-Cov2 PCR test,' the club statement read.

'He will therefore respect isolation and is subject to the appropriate health protocol.

'His assistants Jesus Perez and Miguel D'Agostino will take over from tomorrow in Angers.'

Colin Dagba, Thilo Kehrer, Rafinha are also sidelined after testing positive, but the Parisian's brightest stars Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are firing fit to face Ligue 1's second-placed side.
