The return of Real Madrid to activities was marked by positive cases of coronavirus in four members of the first team: Thibaut Courtois, Vinicius Junior, Eduardo Camavinga and Federico Valverde. However, between Wednesday (the day he announced the news) and Thursday there were some surprises that change the landscape in Carlo Ancelotti’s team.
By protocols, the Belgian goalkeeper, the Uruguayan midfielder, the French midfielder and the Brazilian forward began the period of confinement in their homes. However, the ‘White House’ carried out a new round of discard tests and the results showed that the ‘1’ of the team came out negative. There was a second test with the goalkeeper and it was negative again.
In that sense, Courtois could have been a false positive case. Thus, Real Madrid contacted LaLiga to send the medical report detailing the situation of the ‘Red Devils’ goalkeeper. Then, the organization of the local championship, with the papers in hand, must give the go-ahead for the former Chelsea to return to training.
If so, the goalkeeper will be able to present in the first game of 2022: Sunday, January 2, against Getafe. Then, the merengue team will collide with Alcoyano on Wednesday the 5th in the Copa del Rey and later they will travel to Saudi Arabia to face Barcelona on Wednesday the 12th in the semifinals of the Spanish Super Cup.
As soon as the results of the new tests to which he was subjected were known, the Real Madrid goalkeeper spoke through social networks. The ‘1’ of the whites awaits the ‘OK’ to put on the gloves and square under the three posts in the next matches for ‘Carletto’ Ancelotti’s.
“I have been negative in two consecutive PCRs and I am waiting to receive authorization from the authorities to be able to play”, said the 29-year-old soccer player in his official profile.
Precisely, through that medium, the Madrid player was criticized by the fans, who accused him of being irresponsible for going on vacation to Dubai (United Arab Emirates). However, after the uncomfortable moment lived with the fans, it seems that it was just a scare.
