Luis Suarez has been tested positive for CoVID-19!
The Atletico Madrid striker was on national duty with Uruguay when he was tested positive.
“Tests have been carried out on all the members of the national team, with the result that the players Luis Suarez (and) Rodrigo Munoz and the official, Matias Faral, have tested positive for Covid-19,” the Uruguayan football federation said in a statement.
“The three members mentioned are in good health and the corresponding measures have already been implemented,” it added.
Apart from Suarez, Uruguay goalkeeper Rodrigo Munoz and official Matias Faral have also been found COVID-19 positive.
His team were playing in the qualifiers for Copa America but Suarez will have to now sit out. In what will be an even bigger blow for the player, he will be now missing from the much anticipated return to Nou Camp.
The veteran forward spent the better part of his career at Barcelona and won numerous trophies. He was sold this summer to balance books while being blamed for the club’s sad state at the same time.
He would enjoyed a return to the club he loved so much and it would have made an exciting watch for the fans to see Suarez play and score against Barcelona.
