Real Madrid Manager, Zidane, Tests Positive For COVID-19

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Spanish club made the announcement in a club statement on Friday.

The diagnosis comes a day before Madrid travel to Alaves in La Liga seeking to bounce back from an embarrassing midweek Copa del Rey exit.

“Real Madrid C.F. report that our coach Zinedine Zidane has tested positive for Covid-19,” the club statement read.

Real assistant coach David Bettoni said that Zidane was “fine” after his positive test, although “sad” not to be among the players.

“I spoke with the coach this morning and he is fine,” Bettoni said.

“He was a little sad this morning not to be with us. He will not physically be with us, but we all know that he will be with us supporting.

“He will not be with us physically during tomorrow’s game, but he will be with us to support the players, give his energy and help everyone.”
