Sebastian Sosa, Uruguayan goalkeeper of Independent, tested positive for COVID-19 in the PCR test, as reported by Red in their social networks, so it is confirmed that he will not play the classic against Racing. The footballer acknowledged in an interview with “Último al arco” on radio Sport 890 that he had started to feel bad before the last game against Talleres.
“On Saturday morning for the game with Talleres I woke up with some pain, with little desire to get out of bed and as with a flu picture “Sosa said last Monday, the day he arrived at Rojo’s training but did not get to train because the rapid test gave him a positive result.
The Uruguayan was waiting for the PCR to know if it was a false positive or if it was a confirmed case of COVID-19, which ended up on Tuesday. Independiente also confirmed that coach Julio César Falcioni, as well as footballers Patricio Ostachuk, Domingo Blanco, Ezequiel Muñoz and Diego Segovia had also tested positive in rapid tests. In addition to Falcioni, who coached the team against Talleres on Saturday, Ostachuk and Blanco were among those called up in that match.
Sosa had already had the virus in July 2020 when he was still playing for Mazatlán in Mexico.
Regarding this fact, Sosa said in the aforementioned interview that three months after having contracted it, a test was done to see if he had antibodies and he no longer had it, “as if he had not had the virus,” he said.
Sosa also referred to the pain caused by missing his first Avellaneda classic against Racing. “It was a great goal. When you arrive at this club you know that there is a very important classic against Racing and I was excited to play it. Since I arrived I know how nice it is to play those kinds of games and I was looking forward to it. The main thing is health, to be well; and sports, even if it has a terrible anger and bitterness, goes to the background “, he pointed.
