Sergi Roberto of Barcelona has tested positive for coronavirus, the LaLiga club has announced.
Roberto, who suffered a thigh injury against Atlético de Madrid last month, was already out of the game until January.
Barça reported this Wednesday that Roberto “is in good health and is isolated at home.”
His statement added: “The club has informed the relevant sports and health authorities, and everyone who had contact with the player was traced through further PCR tests.”
Right-back Roberto had started seven of the Blaugrana’s eight league games before his injury, despite the signing of Sergino Dest from Ajax.
Dest started ahead of Roberto for the October Classic, which Real Madrid won 3-1.
The Spanish international, also capable of playing in midfield, has scored a goal in LaLiga this season, contributing two assists on 10 occasions created.
