Bad news: Jovic, new confirmed case of coronavirus in Real Madrid

New case of coronavirus in Real Madrid. This Thursday, the club announced that Luka jovic is infected with the disease. So the striker was sent home to start the quarantine process. In this way, the player joins coach Carlo Ancelotti’s discard list thinking about Sunday’s duel against Getafe for LaLiga Santander.

“Real Madrid CF reports that our player Jović has tested positive for COVID-19”, says the brief statement of the merengue team in relation to the situation of the attacker, who arrived from Eintracht Frankfurt of the Bundesliga and who has gone unnoticed with the Spanish jacket.

Jovic, as well as the entire squad, went through the discard tests last Wednesday and tested negative. However, before starting work on Thursday, the gunner has been reported as positive. Immediately, the ‘White House’ activated all the protocols and the athlete was quickly sent home.

Of course, the newspaper AS pointed out that the Serbian underwent a PCR to confirm positive for the coronavirus. In any case, the result of the test will be known on Friday and if it is ratified, it will definitely not be against Getafe, nor against Alcoyano in the premiere of the new Copa del Rey campaign.

Real Madrid, after closing 2021 at the top of the domestic championship and in the last 16 of the Champions League (they will play with PSG in February and March), gave their players rest. But, before going on vacation, the institution gave clear instructions to prevent an outbreak on the campus, such as occurred at the beginning of December.

Courtois false positive?

Thibaut Courtois, Vinicius Junior, Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde were reported as positive for COVID-19, according to Real Madrid. But, the ‘White House’ carried out a new round of discard tests and the results showed that the ‘1’ of the team came out negative. There was a second test with the goalkeeper and it was negative again.

In that sense, Courtois could have been a false positive case. Thus, Real Madrid contacted LaLiga to send the medical report detailing the situation of the ‘Red Devils’ goalkeeper. Then, the organization of the local championship, with the papers in hand, must give the go-ahead for the former Chelsea to return to training. “I have been negative in two consecutive PCRs and I am waiting to receive authorization from the authorities to be able to play”, he expressed.
