Barcelona have annouced that Sergi Roberto has tested positive for COVID-19 but is in good health and currently self-isolating at home.

The club announced the news on Wednesday in an official statement:

“After the PCR tests carried out on Tuesday, first team player Sergi Roberto has tested positive for Covid-19. The player is in good health and is isolating at home following his recovery from the injury that occurred on November 21.

“The club has informed the relevant sports and health authorities, and all those who had contact with the player were tracked via further PCR tests.”

Of course Roberto is not with the first-team squad and hasn’t been training because he suffered a thigh injury against Atletico Madrid. Barcelona subsequently ruled him out of action for two months after the game.

Get well soon Sergi Roberto!
