French forward Moussa Dembélé has become the fourth Atlético Madrid player to test positive for Covid-19 within the space of a week, the Spanish league leaders confirmed Thursday.
The club said in a statement that the forward, who joined the Madrid side on loan in January, was isolating at home in line with the league’s protocol.
Atlético announced just 24 hours earlier that club record signing João Felix had tested positive for Covid-19.
Last Saturday, defender Mario Hermoso and winger Yannick Carrasco were also confirmed to have returned positive results.
Atlético, who currently hold a 10-point lead at the top of the Spanish top-flight division with a game in hand, host Celta Vigo at home on Monday.
