Senegal midfielder Ricardo Faty has been discharged from a Turkish hospital on Monday after recovering from coronavirus.
Faty tested positive to the virus last Tuesday during a medical examination carried out by Ankaragucu ahead of their first training session after the lockdown in Turkey.
“Unfortunately, one of our players has tested positive for Covid-19, and further advanced checks were carried out. His treatment starts in the hospital. We will be informing our fans regarding the situation of our footballer during the treatment process,” the club statement read.
The former Roma and Bursaspor midfielder took to social media to announce his recovery on Monday and praised the healthcare workers for their ‘extraordinary job’.
“As of today, I am completely healed and my Covid-19 tests are negative. Thank you all for your interest and good faith messages,” Faty wrote on Instagram.
“To the healthcare professionals who do an extraordinary job every day and I would also like to thank my club’s managers, players and staff for their support.
“Always pay attention to yourself. We are strong together.”
