Ghana international Thomas Partey and his Atletico Madrid teammates were tested for Covid-19 ahead of league resumption in Spain.
The 26-year-old was at the team’s training facility on Wednesday to take the test as Spanish football pushes towards a return to action.
Spanish football is anticipating at least 30 cases of coronavirus among its players, but will not allow professionals testing positive to derail its operation to restart the season in the middle of next month.
Only players who test positive will be quarantined and the four phases of testing, solitary training, group training, and full-squad training will go ahead.
The Ghanaian midfielder has been one of the consistent performers for Atletico Madrid, making 31 appearances in all competitions thus far.
