Joao Felix tested positive for COVID-19, contributing to the troubles of Diego Simeone ahead of Atletico Madrid’s meeting with Celta Vigo.
A brief Atletico statement read: “Joao Felix has tested positive for COVID-19. The striker is isolating at home, in compliance with the health authorities’ guidelines and LaLiga protocols.”
Portugal’s international Joao Felix, as team-mates Mario Hermoso and Yannick Carrasco have been doing since Friday, is self-isolating at home.
A positive COVID-19 test forced Felix to detach himself ahead of the match against Celta Vigo with Atletico Madrid.
