Mahmoud Trezeguet is among a host of Aston Villa players to contract COVID-19, the Egyptian winger said on Tuesday.
"After needing 6 stitches due to a head injury, I suffered a [muscle] tear and a hamstring injury in quick succession and I was absent for a month," Trezeguet said on Twitter.
"And then after rehabilitation and after my return to training, I was infected with the coronavirus. Thanks God for everything."
Trezeguet's last appearance with Aston Villa came in the 2-1 defeat by West Ham United in the Premier League in late November.
The 26-year-old has yet to open his account this season but he has provided two assists in 10 appearances in all competitions so far this term.
A recent outbreak of coronavirus cases at Villa saw nine first team players and five staff members test positive.
The team fielded academy players in their 4-1 FA Cup third-round loss to Liverpool last Friday and had their Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur, which was due to take place on Wednesday, rescheduled.
