Real Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane has tested positive for COVID-19, the Liga giants have revealed.
The Frenchman, who has been seeing serious questions asked of his future at Santiago Bernabeu, will now enter a period of self-isolation.
He had been on the touchline for a shock Copa del Rey defeat to Alcoyano on Wednesday, with the Blancos slipping out of that competition after being humbled by third tier opposition.
Zidane will not be in the dugout for Real’s next fixture, with a trip to Alaves set to be taken in on Saturday.
Madrid have said in a statement on their official website: “Real Madrid CF announces that our coach Zinedine Zidane has tested positive for COVID-19.”
