Goalkeeper John and defender Wagner Leonardo tested positive for the new coronavirus and are still in Argentina. The couple did not return to Brazil with the rest of the Santos delegation. The information was published by Gazeta Esportiva, and confirmed Twitter.
In this way, the alvinegra team tries to secure a medical flight so that the two of them can leave Argentina today – the rest of the cast returned yesterday. By local standards, they could only leave the country with a negative result for covid-19.
Santos tries to lead the duo so John and Wagner Leonardo make a counter-resistance in Brazil.
Last Wednesday, the club drew 0-0 against Boca Juniors, at Bombonera, for the semi-finals of Libertadores.
