The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) has announced that nine players who are part of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) provisional squad have tested positive to Covid-19.

In a statement, ZIFA said all players and the technical team were tested this Monday upon their return from the festive break.

ZIFA Communications and Competitions Manager Xolisani Gwesela also announced that ZIFA has suspended all training sessions for the CHAN team pending consultations with other stakeholders although the team remains in camp.

All the affected players have since been quarantined in line with the World Health Organisation protocols.

The provisional 23-men squad conducted its first training session at the National Sports Stadium’s B Arena in Harare this Monday after a Christmas holiday break.

The Chan tournament will run from January 16 to February 7 in Cameroon.
