- Florentin Pogba has joined the list of football stars to test positive for COVID-19
- The 30-year-old was dropped Sochaux squad that played a draw at Toulouse earlier this week
- This is coming a few days after Paul Pogba recovered from the deadly virus
Paul Pogba's elder brother Florentin has become the latest football star to test positive for deadly coronavirus.
The 30-year-old defender who is currently on the payroll of French League Two outfit FC Sochaux-Montbeliard will now go on isolation for the next two weeks.
His younger brother, Paul, also missed most part of Manchester United's pre-season preparations due to the same reason.
The situation forced him to be excluded from his side that played 0-0 against Toulouse on Monday, September 14.
Sochaux announced: "Regular checks of players and staff revealed that Florentin Pogba has tested positive for Covid-19.
"As soon as the results became known the player was isolated and subjected to health protocols. He had a test that confirmed the initial diagnosis.
"As a result Florentin Pogba did not make the trip to Toulouse for Monday's game.
"The defender will rejoin the squad once he has completed his spell in quarantine, and taken a fresh round of tests."
Florentin completed a three-year move to Ligue 2 side Sochaux on a free transfer from US club Atlanta United this summer. He once represented the likes of Sedan, Saint Etienne and Turks Genclerbirligi.

The World Cup winner recently recovered from the deadly coronavirus having contracted the virus last month.
He returned to the Red Devils' training camp at Carrington Complex as they prepare for the friendly encounter against Aston Villa at Villa Park on Saturday, September 12.
Pogba was in isolation with his wife Maria Zulay who also tested positive for COVID-19, but they have both recovered together and are feeling fine now.
