A skinny dog is all fleas: Umtiti, positive for COVID-19!

The French central does not lift his head. To the problems in his left knee, he added this Thursday the positive in the PCR test, which will force him to spend fourteen days in confinement.


Samuel Umtiti is living a real nightmare situation. And it is because of the problems that he has been dragging for two years in his left knee, due to his stubbornness not to go through the operating room, which have left him practically unpublished in the last two seasons - he has barely played 33 of the last 110 games that Barcelona has played - this Thursday was added the setback of having tested positive for COVID-19. The peculiarity in this case is that the test was carried out in Barcelona - the center-back did not travel to Lisbon - while the rest of the teammates underwent the test at the Da Luz stadium before training.

A positive that will force you to be confined at home for a minimum of 14 days to pass quarantine. From the club they specified in a statement that the player is "asymptomatic", adding that "he is in good health and at home" .

Barcelona also reported that it will carry out PCR tests "on all the people who have had contact with the player in recent days."

Samuel Umtiti is Barcelona's second positive in a few days. On Tuesday it was his compatriot, Jean Clair Todibo, who tested positive, while Carles Aleñá, despite not testing positive, also had to start confinement having been in direct contact with the French central defender. Thus, at present there are already three FC Barcelona players who are confined to their homes due to the coronavirus pandemic.
