Dolberg among three Covid-19 cases before Nice host PSG

Three Nice players including Denmark forward Kasper Dolberg have tested positive for coronavirus ahead of hosting Paris Saint-Germain this weekend, sources told AFP on Thursday.

The 22-year-old former Ajax striker's team-mates in French winger Alexis Claude-Maurice and defender Stanley Nkosi have also contracted the illness.

The sources who spoke to AFP confirmed a news report in the French publication l'Equipe.

The club refused to comment when contacted by AFP and said coach Patrick Vieira would hold his weekly pre-match press conference on Friday.

The Parisians head to the Allianz Riviera on Sunday with the French league protocol saying games are to be postponed if four or more cases of the virus are found at one side.
