Absa Premiership side SuperSport United may restart the season minus one player after the latest Covid-19 tests.
While the club had reported four positive cases last month, its latest round of testing, on the eve of entering the Biologically Safe Environment, has not gone accordingly.
“We would like to confirm one positive COVID-19 case from the second round of testing that was completed this week,” Matsatsantsa a Pirtori announced on Friday.

“The player has currently been put into quarantine for 10 days and will be retested thereafter.
A group of 40 personnel were tested (25 players and 15 staff members).
“The rest of the squad will resume training and will continue to follow all protocols before heading into the bubble for the completion of the 2019/2020 season,” concluded the club.
Kaitano Tembo’s side will restart the season against Bloemfontein Celtic next Friday.
