The Bengaluru FC star forward took to social media to post the update and said that he is feeling fine.

“In a not-so-happy update, I”ve tested positive for COVID-19. In better news, I feel fine as I continue my recovery from the virus and should be back on a football pitch soon,” Chhetri wrote on his Twitter handle.

“No better time to keep reminding everyone to continue taking all the safety precautions always.”

His campaign got over after Bengaluru FC failed to make the semifinals. The team”s last game was on February 25, which Chhetri played and also scored a goal.

Bengaluru FC were placed seventh on the table at the end of the league stage.

Chhetri, the second highest goal scorer in international football among active players, scored eight times in the 20 ISL games this season.
