The national team said in a statement: “RFEF regrets to announce that its captain, Sergio Busquets, won the last PCR test at the Las Rozas national team camp this morning. Positive result.” “The test results of the other members of the group are all negative.
“The Football Association’s medical service department has taken all necessary measures in accordance with the agreement established by the Ministry of Health and UEFA, so the football player has abandoned the team in the medical vehicle.
“Close contacts of workers and players will be quarantined in the national team for prevention, and personalized training procedures will be activated to maintain isolation in order to continue preparing for Europe. [Championship].
“Appropriate sports measures will be evaluated as soon as possible based on the development of the matter.”
This experienced defensive midfielder and Spanish captain is an important presence for a team that is sometimes still struggling to transition from a brief period of dominance more than a decade ago.
I hope Busquets will be able to participate in all the matches of the 2020 European Cup-and no one else will miss it because of Covid-but the test results in the next few days will provide clearer information.
