Athletic has communicated that the players of the men’s first team Iñigo Martinez and Unai Simón have tested positive for COVID-19 in antigen testing to which the rojiblanca squad have been subjected. Those affected are in good health and complying with the sanitary isolation protocol at home.
Therefore, both will not be in the game this Sunday 19 against the Real Betis in San Mamés or in the match against Real Madrid on the same stage that closes this 2021 also marked by the vile pandemic. Curiously, the international center-back already missed the first date against the white team with a penalty. The young Julen Agirrezabala and Unai Núñez will be his substitutes in the eleven of Marcelino García Toral, Taking into account that Vivian is still in the process of recovering the anterior rectus and that the Asturian coach has not opted for Ezkieta to be the tenant of the arch.
