Barcelona undisclosed squad player tests positive for coronavirus

An unnamed Barcelona player has been confirmed to have tested positive for coronavirus, but the club say he has not been in contact with any member of the Champions League squad.

Barcelona, on Tuesday, conducted coronavirus tests on nine players – Pedri, Trincao, Matheus Fernandes, Jean-Clair Todibo, Moussa Wague, Carles Alena, Rafinha, Juan Miranda and Oriol Busquets – who are due to return for preparatory training for the coming season.

One out of the nine tested players, however, returned a positive test. The club has kept him anonymous and say he is asymptomatic and is quarantining at home.

In a statement released by the club, Barcelona added that the matter has been reported to the appropriate health authorities and that all of the player’s recent contacts have been tracked.

Also, none of the tested nine players is part of the first-team squad that is set to travel to face Bayern Munich for their Champions League quarter-final clash in Lisbon on Friday.

The competition is being concluded as a mini-tournament in Portugal after being postponed at the last-16 stage in March due to the pandemic.
