The Argentine coach of Elche, Jorge Almirón, has tested positive again in the latest PCR tests for coronavirus and will not be in charge of the Elche team this Sunday against Athletic Club, in San Mamés.
The second coach, Jesús Muñoz, will once again lead the team from the wing, as happened in the last two games against Osasuna (2-2) and Real Madrid (1-1).
Jorge Almirón tested positive for coronavirus in the previous match against Osasuna, played on December 22, and since then he has been isolated from the team.
“He has not tested negative yet and he has not been able to be with us as he would have liked. Now we have to wait for the negative PCR to be given as soon as possible. He is well and wants to be on the field. I hope that day will come soon, ”said Jesús Muñoz.
