The two positive coronavirus cases reported in the Atletico Madrid camp have both been returned by players, Goal reports.
News broke on Sunday that two members of the party set to travel to the Champions League quarter-finals in Portugal had tested positive for the virus, but there was no further indication whether those effected were members of the playing or backroom staff.
According to reports, two members of Diego Simeone’s squad, however, are responsible for the two positive tests and, as such, will not travel to Portugal or take part in the remainder of the competition.
The players are in a stable condition and are observing isolation protocols in their own homes.
In response to the two positive tests, a fresh round of testing has been activated on Atleti’s first team and members of staff who have travelled, while there are also checks being made on those who have come into close contact with the players.
