After Real Madrid won the championship, the players were given several days off and when they returned from them the team performed corona tests for everyone. Mariano as mentioned was diagnosed as positive for the virus, unlike the other staff players who were found negative.
As a precaution to keep the players healthy, Real will carry out the tests in the players’ homes and under the supervision of the club, following the fact that the Spanish association no longer sets the constitution for it after the end of the season.
In any case, this is not a professional disadvantage for Zinedine Zidane because Mariano (who suffered injuries) made only seven appearances this season during which he scored one goal, in the Clasico against Barcelona.
Real Madrid forward Mariano has reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss their Champions League clash with Manchester City.
Mariano is self-isolating at home and did not train with the squad so it is expected the tie will still go ahead. pic.twitter.com/qGZO7EUGBR
