Laliga side, Atletico Madrid has confirmed that its Manager Diego Simeone, has tested Positive for coronavirus.

The news came as a huge blow to Atletico’s preparations for the upcoming campaign as Simeone is now on isolation and will be forced to cut himself off from others in quarantine for two weeks.

With the development, Assistant Nelson Vivas will have to take charge of affairs on the training ground after long-serving No2 German Burgos left this summer.

Simeone is believed should be fine to return for Atleti’s home opener against Granada on September 27.
