Borussia Mönchengladbach will have to manage without Alassane Plea for the time being after the French striker tested positive for COVID-19.

Speaking at the pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Augsburg, Gladbach coach Marco Rose revealed that the French striker is in self-isolation after returning a positive test.

"Alassane Plea won't be involved on Saturday because he tested positive for Covid-19. With the quality he has, he will obviously be a big loss for us," said Rose.

Plea has scored four goals and made four assists in nine games for Gladbach in all tournaments this season.
