Head coach of Bangladesh national football team Jamie Day has tested positive for coronavirus (Covid-19).
Media department of the Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) confirmed this to risingbd on Sunday (November 15).
BFF media executive Khalid Mahmud Naomi said, “Our head coach Jamie Day tested positive on the routine tests carried out on all the players and staff of both Bangladesh and Nepal taken on Saturday. All the others have tested negative.”
Jamie Day is asymptomatic and now in good health, he said.
Bangladesh team manager Amer Khan said, “Jamie tested positive for Covid-19 which is unexpected. We were in a good position in the two FIFA international friendlies. May be, we have to play the remaining match without the coach. Now he is in isolation. The training session of the team scheduled this morning has been deferred to the afternoon.”
Bangladesh had beaten the visitors Nepal 2-0 in the first match on Friday (November 13).
