Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has cancelled his media activities on Friday after returning an inconclusive coronavirus test.

He is awaiting the results of a PCR test ahead of Sunday’s trip to Newcastle in the Premier League – live on Sky Sports.

As things stand, that game is expected to go ahead.

Former Barcelona head coach Guardiola travelled to Catalonia this week to attend Sergio Aguero’s retirement news conference at the Nou Camp.

If his PCR test comes back positive he will have to isolate for 10 days and miss the trip to St James’ Park on Sunday. But if it comes back negative, he can take charge of the team.

An isolation period of 10 days would mean Guardiola is also unavailable for the Boxing Day visit of Leicester City in the Premier League.
