Roberto Soldado, positive in Covid-19, misses the clash against PSV

Granada has communicated that one of its players, Roberto Soldado, has tested positive for Covid-19 after carrying out the PCR tests provided for in UEFA protocols. The Valencian forward is asymptomatic and isolated at home. The rest of his colleagues have tested negative in the aforementioned tests. The Sports City has been disinfected and the rest of the staff will work individually this Tuesday afternoon in Los Cármenes.

We reproduce the statement provided by the club. “Granada Club de Fútbol announces that, after the PCR tests provided for in the UEFA protocol were carried out yesterday, a positive case for COVID-19 has been detected in the first team. Specifically, it is Roberto Soldado, who is asymptomatic and has been isolated at home, under constant monitoring by the club's medical services. After knowing the results of the tests, Granada CF has immediately made them known to the health authorities, and has scrupulously followed the protocol established in the event of a positive test pending recovery and subsequent reinstatement. This morning the spraying and nebulization of the Ciudad Deportiva facilities has been carried out to comply with the disinfection protocol, and the rest of the team will continue with individual training this afternoon at Los Cármenes Stadium at 7:30 p.m. ”.

Soldado will not be able to play the first game of his group in the Europa League against PSV Eindhoven next Thursday, so the options for the top of the attack for Diego Martínez will be Luis Suárez and Jorge Molina.
