Raúl tests positive for covid-19

Despite the health security measures in place in and around the club's facilities, Real Madrid continue to suffer from the coronavirus. The latest member of the club to test positive is legendary striker and current Castilla head coach Raúl González. The 43-year-old will quarantine until he is fit to return to training.

Raúl will miss his side's next fixture against Getafe B for Matchday 11 of Group I of Spain's Third Division. The former Spain international is expected to return in time for Castilla's clash with Rayo Majadahonda on January 31, although everything depends on his test results. Castilla have not competed in over a month, with their last game coming on December 13 against neighbours Atlético Madrid B.

Despite the strict measures in place, there have been several Real Madrid players right through the club who have tested positive for the virus. In the first team, Casemiro, Luka Jovic and Eden Hazard have all spent time in quarantine, having contracted covid-19. Head coach Zinedine Zidane also spent a short period of time self-isolating after coming into contact with a positive case of the virus.
