Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has tested positive for Covid-19.

The Belgian international just returned from playing for his country and he will be out for Guardiola's side for some days.

Guardiola confirmed in a press conference ahead of the game against Everton.

"Kevin got positive from Covid. He will be 10 days isolated," Guardiola said on Friday. "Two days ago, he told me that he was positive. He is here (in Manchester).

"Forget about the fitness, the momentum, he has to recover well. The human being is more important than anything else."

De Bruyne will miss Manchester City's Champions League Clash against PSG.

"Right now people are dying in this pandemic. He was vaccinated so is more protected and hopefully the symptoms will be minor," Guardiola said.

"He will come back as soon as possible. There is no concern about the rhythm or what we are going to miss. We have to help him."

Jack Grealish and Phil Foden are also expected to miss the match against Everton.
