West Ham manager David Moyes has tested positive for coronavirus alongside Hammers players Issa Diop and Josh Cullen.
The trio found out they had contracted the virus moments before the club’s Carabao Cup third-round hosting of Hull City.
As such, Moyes, defender Diop and midfielder Cullen left the London Stadium at once, with assistant coach Alan Irvine taking charge of the rest of the squad as they went ahead with the match.
A statement release by West Ham during the game on Tuesday night read: “West Ham United can confirm that David Moyes, Issa Diop and Josh Cullen have returned positive tests for Covid-19.
“The Club’s medical team were informed of the test results as the team were at London Stadium preparing for this evening’s Carabao Cup third-round tie against Hull City.
