Mikel Oyarzabal to miss Nations League games after positive COVID-19 test

Baku, August 31, AZERTAC

Mikel Oyarzabal has tested positive for coronavirus, according to Marca.

The Real Sociedad captain confirmed his diagnosis in a post on social media in which he said he was self-isolating at home.

Oyarzabal will now not be able to join up with Luis Enrique's Spain squad for their UEFA Nations League matches in September.

The forward is the fourth positive case detected at La Real recently, with Aritz Elustondo the only other person to make the news public.

As a result of the positive tests, the club cancelled their pre-season trip to Portugal.

The situation is growing more and more complicated for Imanol Alguacil, with his squad already hampered by injury and with just 15 days until the start of LaLiga Santander.
