Ghanaian footballer, Kevin-Prince Boateng quarantined in Turkey over coronavirus
German-born Ghanaian international, Kevin-Prince Boateng, is in self-isolation in Istanbul, Turkey, after Galatasaray coach, Faith Terim, tested positive for coronavirus.
The report, according to Ghanasoccernet, has that the player’s wife, Melissa Satta, confirmed it in a video call, in which she said, “My husband was called to take the test because someone from the Turkish championship tested positive”.
Prior to this, Kevin’s Besiktas and Galatasaray were involved in a Turkish Super Lig match before the league was suspended.
The situation has called for the need of players of both teams to be put under quarantine, and their samples were taken for testing.
According to his wife Melisa, Kevin-Prince Boateng could not travel out of Istanbul, as a result, and must be quarantined for 14-days, and would only be allowed to reunite with his family if he was cleared.
