Roy's teammates test positive for COVID-19

Two of Roy Krishna's ATK Mohun Bagan teammates tested positive for COVID-19, hours before their Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup Group D matches in Maldives were postponed by the continental football governing body.

Prabir Das and SK Sahi tested positive after all the team members underwent COVID-19 tests at a private hospital in Kolkata on Friday before their earlier scheduled travel to Maldives capital, Male.

Under the AFC protocols, competing players have to produce COVID-19 negative reports two days before departure from their home base.

ATKMB were scheduled to leave for Maldives on Monday but that plan stands cancelled after the AFC’s announcement.

The AFC is in contact with all other participating clubs and officials who have not entered the Maldives to cancel their travel arrangements.”     

ATKMB were earlier scheduled to open their campaign on 14 May and Krishna was supposed to directly reach Maldives from Fiji before the opening match.
