Bangladesh football team manager, physio test positive for Covid-19 in Qatar

Bangladesh national football team manager Amer Khan and physio Fuad Hasan Hawlader, who are now in Qatar with the team, tested positive for Coronavirus.

A source in Bangladesh Football Federation confirmed the news.

Earlier on Thursday, Bangladesh national football team left Dhaka for Qatar without two key players -- striker Nabib Newaj Zibon and defender Manjurur Rahman Manik -- to play the joint qualification match of FIFA World Cup 2022 and Asia Cup 2023.

They also missed their British Head Coach Jamie Day, who tested Covid-19 positive for the second time on Monday, apart from Zibon and Monjurur.

Monjurur was dropped from team in the last moment as he tested Covid-19 positive while striker Zibon missed the trip due to a knee injury.

Bangladesh will play their tough round-2 Group E away match against Asian champions and hosts Qatar in Doha on December 4.
