Former footballers and coronaviruses: Xavi positive, Vucinic has recovered

Mirko Vucinic had coronavirus, but has now recovered. Instead, Xavi tested positive a few hours ago. The former Barcelona footballer trains Al-Sadd.

Former Roma and Juventus footballer Mirko Vucinic had the coronavirus but passed it brilliantly. He told it to Corriere dello Sport during an interview with Roberto Maida.

“I was in Montenegro, in Podgorica, I felt a bit of alteration: I had a fever at 38.2. Nothing special. In the following days the temperature dropped, so I was quite calm but given the period I preferred to make the swab: it was positive. I didn't take it well, honestly.

With so many people dying, even in my country where the situation is alarming enough, I was worried. It all seemed strange to me: I had no such serious symptoms, yet they admitted me to the hospital in the Covid ward. Three days.

And when they released me, I started quarantine. After another 12 days they swab me again and it was negative. The virus was gone, just as it had come. Mysteriously.

I have only one sign left in my lungs highlighted by CT. Fortunately I had a mild form: I never had respiratory crisis or serious illness. And everything in the family is also ok. "

Even Xavi among the ex virus positive players.

Former Barcelona and Spain star Xavi Hernandez tested positive for coronavirus. The news was given by the coach of the Al-Sadd team on the Qatar club's Twitter account, adding that today he will miss the resumption of the championship against Al-Khor.

"A few days ago, following the League protocol in Qatar, I tested positive in the last test for Covid-19," said the 40-year-old coach, midfielder of the national world champion in 2010.

Recently Xavi put an end to the rumors that led him to lead Barcelona, ​​extending his contract to lead Al-Sadd for the 2020-2021 season.

“Fortunately, I feel good, but I will be quarantined until everything returns to normal – he added – When the health services allow it, I will be very happy to return to my daily life and work. Today I will not be able to join my team for the return to official competitions ".

He will be replaced by second coach, David Prats. (source ANSA-AFP).
