Nantes captain Toure tests positive for COVID-19

Nantes captain Abdoulaye Toure has tested positive for coronavirus, AFP learned from the Ligue 1 club on Saturday, just a week before the new league season is set to get underway.
Midfielder Toure, 26, is the seventh Nantes player to contract COVID-19 since the end of last month and did not figure in his side’s 3-1 friendly win over Le Havre on Saturday.
His absence will be keenly felt in a week’s time when Nantes starts the 2020-21 Ligue 1 season at Bordeaux.
They could be without their skipper, who was born and raised in Nantes, and several other players for weeks thanks to a strict medical protocol put in place by the club.
