This comes after he spent almost two weeks in quarantine due to being in close contact with someone else who had tested positive.

"After isolating myself from close contact, the last test they gave me showed I tested positive for COVID-19 and I had some symptoms and I've been following the doctor's instructions", Aguero tweeted.

Aguero has endured a frustrating campaign and has made just two Premier League starts as a result of injuries and enforced absences, the Argentina worldwide having already been in isolation since January 10 after coming into close contact with a person who tested positive for coronavirus.

Manchester City is now second in the Premier League, two points behind Manchester United but with a game in hand. "Take care, everyone", Aguero wrote on Twitter.

Speaking to Fox News early this week, Cook justified suspending Parler, favored by supporters of former president Donald Trump . Amazon denied its move to pull the plug on Parler had anything to do with political animus.

Aguero, who has made just three starts this season due to a knee injury and none since October, will now enter another two-week period of isolation and must return a negative test before he can return to action.

Guardiola added: "Sergio is a player who can create for himself and win a game by himself but he has not been with us for a long time". We could have complained (about being without him), but we did the opposite.

In December, the Man City star pleaded with fans for patience with him to get back to his best as he revealed he was still struggling with a knee injury despite making a recent return to the first team, only for a relapse to keep him out of contention.

City are away to Cheltenham Town in the FA Cup fourth round this weekend, before taking on West Brom and Sheffield United next week in the Premier League.
