French professional footballer Jean-Clair Todibo has confirmed that he is the Barcelona star who has the deadly Coronavirus and he is currently on self isolation at home.
This latest development is coming ahead of Barcelona's tough Champions League game against German champions Bayern Munich.
Coronavirus has caused serious trouble in many nations in the world with no confirmed specific cure for it.
On Wednesday morning, August 12, Barcelona announced that one of their players is having Covid-19, but the Catalan chiefs did not reveal the name of the star.
Twenty-year old Todibo has now stated on social media that he is the player Barcelona are talking about.
"Hello everyone, I inform you that I have tested positive for Covid-19, I am asymptomatic and I feel fine.
"I am at home following the proper health protocol. I really want to go back to training, but now it's time to stay home until the virus is over.
"Thank you all for the support and encouragement to all the people who are also experiencing it closely,'' he explained.
Barcelona will be facing Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinal which is expected to be a tough game.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Lionel Messi had a spectacular performance in Barcelona’s 3-1 Champions League win over Napoli scoring a brilliant goal and then having another ruled out by centre referee Cuneyt Cakir.
The Argentine striker was furious at the decision deny him the goal as Cakir ruled it out citing handball by the player and Messi responded after the game after ignoring his handshake.
La Blaugrana made it through to the quarter finals with a 5-2 aggregate score-line and will face one of the favourites Bayern Munich next.
It was Napoli that made the first attempt but their strike hit the bar early on, and the hosts went ahead to take the lead in the 10th minute courtesy of a fine header from Clement Lenglet.
And 13 minutes later, their talisman Lionel Messi struck the second goal of the game in outrageous fashion.
