Six Vipers SC players have tested positive for the deadly coronavirus from the tests that were carried out on Wednesday ahead of their return leg of the CAF Champions League tie against Sudan’s Al-Hilal Omdurman on Sunday, 6th December.
The players that tested positive are; captain Halid Lwaliwa, Abdul Karim Watambala, Abraham Ndugwa, Geoffrey Wasswa, Milton Kariisa and Livingstone Mulondo, according to Football256.
The affected players are expected to go into quarantine and self-isolation for at least 14 days.
Nevertheless, head coach Fred Kajoba still has a wide range of talented players in the squad to look at as replacements.
Vipers lost the first leg 1-0 at the St. Mary’s stadium and will need at least to win with two goals to progress to the next stage.
Their ultimate target this season was to make it to the group stage of Champions League group stages.
