After the mandatory swabbing process required by AFA to return to training, it was confirmed that the midfielder has the virus.
After the mandatory tests required by the AFA To return to training from Monday 10, the first cases of coronavirus began to be known in some Argentine soccer campuses.
As reported by Radio La Red, Agustín Almendra tested positive in the swab performed by all Boca players on Friday at the Ezeiza property, so he will be isolated as established by the preventive protocol.
The result of the 20-year-old xeneize midfielder joins the long list of footballers that began with the young goalkeeper Ezequiel Centurión, from River. A few hours later, Tigre announced that Iván Bolaño and Diego Morales are also among the infected footballers. In Independiente it was Fabricio Bustos’s turn, while Vélez reported on Ricky Alvarez and Thiago Almada.
It should be noted this result corresponds to the first round of exams in Boca and it still remains to know the results of the samples of the other members of the campus and coaching staff.
