Austrian footballer David Alaba has tested positive for COVID-19. Real Madrid confirmed the news in a very brief statement and that is a setback for ‘Los Blancos’ ahead of the new season.
“Real Madrid announce that our player David Alaba has tested positive for COVID-19,” the club said.
According to journalist Sergio Quirante ‘El Golazo de Gol’, Alaba had to leave the training ground while the rest continued training.
Although Alaba should have recovered before the league opener against Alaves, it will set him back when it comes to being match fit for the start of the La Liga season.
As Madrid have already sold Ramos and Varane to PSG and Man Utd respectively, this is exactly the news they did not want.
