Diego Simeone

Atlético de Madrid coach Diego Simeone has tested positive for Covid-19, the club announced on Saturday.

Simeone, 50, is isolated at home and has not presented symptoms.

Atlético’s team and staff returned early from a preseason trip to Los Angeles de San Rafael, outside Madrid, after a test Thursday came back positive. Other tests conducted on Friday showed that Simeone had contracted the virus.

“The analysis of these new samples in the laboratory has determined that our coach, Diego Pablo Simeone, has given a positive result for Covid-19,” the club’s statement reads.

“Fortunately, our coach does not present any symptoms and is at home isolated and serving the corresponding quarantine after being with the team since last Monday.”

Simeone was absent from training on Saturday. Atlético’s first La Liga game against Granada is not scheduled to be played until September 27, as the club has had additional free time before starting the season.
