Defender Jean-Clair Todibo has confirmed he is the Barcelona player who tested positive for COVID-19. ‘I am asymptomatic and feel fine.’
The news emerged this morning that the Blaugrana had received a positive test from within their squad.
This is the team that has remained in Barcelona, not the group travelling to Portugal for the Champions League quarter-finals.
“Hello to everyone, I wish to inform you that I have tested positive for COVID-19, but I am asymptomatic and feel fine,” wrote Todibo on his social media profile.
“I am now at home, following the health protocols. I’m looking forward to getting back to training, but right now I have to stay home and recuperate from this virus.
“Thank you for all your support and encouragement, aimed at me just as much as all the other people who are experiencing this illness.”
Todibo was injured and therefore not part of the Barcelona squad that beat Napoli in the Champions League Round of 16.
