ISTANBUL: Turkish football icon Fatih Terim (pic), currently manager of Istanbul giants Galatasaray, said Monday he had tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

“The results of a test done today showed a positive result for coronavirus,” Terim said on Twitter.

“I’m in safe hands at the hospital. Don’t worry. Hopefully I’ll communicate more as soon as possible,” Terim added.

Dubbed “Emperor”, 66-year-old Terim, the former Turkish national boss, coached Galatasaray in three different stints (1996-2000, 2002-2004 and 2011-2013).

He picked up the role for a fourth time in December 2017.

Turkey has officially recorded 1,529 cases of the new coronavirus while 37 people have died, according to the health minister late Monday. – AFP
