Ancelotti tests positive for covid-19


Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has tested positive for covid-19, the merengue club reported on Wednesday.

“Real Madrid CF announces that our coach Carlo Ancelotti has tested positive for COVID-19,” the white club said in a brief statement.

The coach, who led the training on Tuesday, tested positive in one of the routine checks that the club performs on the team and employees.

Ancelotti has isolated himself at home and it remains to be seen if he will be able to go with the team to next Saturday’s League match against Celta in Vigo.

In case of not being able to manage Real Madrid in Balaídos, his place would be taken by his son and second, Davide.

The meringues also travel to London next week to face Chelsea in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals.

The Italian coach joins the long list of members of the white team who have suffered from the disease such as Dani Carvajal, Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois or Vinicius, among others.
