Real Madrid, coach Zinedine Zidane has tested positive for the corona virus, the La Liga club said in a statement on Friday January 22.
The French manager had been isolating earlier this month after a close contact tested positive for Covid-19 and did not attend a training session as a result.
Madrid have said in a statement on their official website: “Real Madrid CF announces that our coach Zinedine Zidane has tested positive for Covid-19.”
In line with protocols, the club will keep their manager closely monitored during his period in isolation.
Zidane leaves his assistant David Bettoni to take care of first-team affairs for now.
