Ex-Fulham striker, Pogrebnyak down with pneumonia after testing positive for coronavirus

Former Fulham and Russian striker, Pavel Pogrebnyak has tested positive for the deadly Coronavirus disease, Daily mail reports.

His wife Maria Pogrebnyak-Shatalova, who made the disclosure also said that she and their three young sons have also been infected with the virus.

She said the 36-year-old player was hospitalised with ‘bilateral pneumonia’ after his current club FC Ural Yekaterinburg confirmed he had been diagnosed with COVID-19.

She said “My husband is in hospital, he is receiving treatment.

“My husband went to team training in Yekaterinburg.

“He had no symptoms whatsoever, nothing was signaling trouble.

“ I believe he became infected after going to his club’s training camp after Russian players restarted training.
“His temperature soared.
“However, I was the last person to be infected with the virus.
“My sense of smell disappeared, I felt absolutely nothing.”
“It feels awful. I started having pain in my throat, it was impossible to eat, even to have a sip of water,” she added.

Pogrebnyak played 12 times for Fulham scoring six goals in the 2011-12 season, before switching to Reading, where he made 103 appearances scoring 26 goals between 2012-15.
