Real Madrid coach Zidane has tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday.

Real Madrid in a statement on its official website said: “Real Madrid CF announces that our coach Zinedine Zidane has tested positive for Covid-19.”

He will not be available for their La Liga match away at Alaves on Saturday with his assistant David Bettoni set to take charge.

Zidane is already under pressure following Real Madrid’s shock cup defeat to third division side Alcoyano earlier this week.

As being reported the French coach was isolating earlier this month after a close contact tested positive for coronavirus and did not attend a training session as a result.

Earlier this season, Real Madrid forward Eden Hazard, midfielder Casemiro and defender Eder Militao have also tested positive for COVID-19.
