‘Telles has tested positive for coronavirus, he’s been out for a few days,’ Solshire said.
“There are no symptoms, he will be fine, he will be back soon.”
It is unclear when Telles’ isolation began, but it is unlikely that he will be able to return to the team until after the international break, which means he will miss matches against. ArsenalAnd Istanbul, Basaksehir and Everton.
Tillis’ absence resulted in Luke Shaw continuing at left-back as United kept a clean sheet for the second time this season in an impressive win over Julian Nagelsmann’s side.
So Shaw will retain his place in the face of United with Arsenal on Stage of Dreams on Sunday.
