(Citizen Free Press) — Zinedine Zidane has covid-19. This was announced by the Spanish club Real Madrid in a brief statement in which they did not offer more details about the coach’s condition.
The French coach was in isolation earlier this month after his close contact tested positive for COVID-19 and did not attend a training session for it.
Zidane, who is under pressure after Real Madrid’s resounding defeat in the Cup to Alcoyano earlier this week, will not be available for Saturday’s league game at Alavés, and his assistant David Bettoni will take over the team.
Real Madrid are second in the league standings, seven points behind their rival in the city, Atlético de Madrid, who have played one game less.
Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard, midfielder Casemiro and defender Eder Militao also tested positive earlier this season.
