Real Madrid Midfielder Valverde tests positive for COVID-19

Real Madrid Midfielder Valverde tests positive for COVID-19

Fede Valverde has returned a positive COVID-19 test today, Real Madrid have confirmed.

The midfielder will now have to undergo a period of self-isolation.

Fede was omitted from 2 La Liga matchday squads - vs Getafe and Cadiz today - after coming into close contact with a COVID-positive person.

The midfielder has also struggled with an ankle injury in the last couple of weeks, one which forced him to withdraw from El Clasico and play on painkillers vs Liverpool in the Champions League.

He'll now miss the game against Betis this weekend and we assume the first semi-final leg vs Chelsea on May 1 is also under threat.

Naturally, we can only wish Fede a speedy recovery. He'll be integral in the last month of action, that's for sure.
