Forward Jorge Molina, Granada’s latest signing, has tested positive for coronavirus and is in isolation at his home, one day after his official presentation as a rojiblanco player, so he will not be part of the expedition that travels to Marbella this Thursday ( Málaga) for a preseason rally.
The Granada club announced this Thursday that, after conducting “the PCR tests provided for in the LaLiga protocol” this past Wednesday, “a positive case for Covid-19 in the first squad” has been detected, corresponding to Jorge Molina.
The Alicante player is asymptomatic and confined at home to pass the quarantine, although he remains under constant monitoring by Granada’s coaching staff and medical services, the club said.
Jorge Molina was introduced this Wednesday as a new Granada player at the Nuevo Los Cármenes Stadium, but had not yet joined the team’s training sessions.
This will prevent the 38-year-old player who has played the last four seasons in Getafe, from participating in the preseason concentration that Granada will carry out from this Thursday and for twelve days in Marbella.
After knowing the results of the tests carried out, Granada has immediately made them known to the health authorities and LaLiga, and has scrupulously followed the protocol established in the case of testing positive for COVID-19, pending recovery and later reinstatement of the forward.
Jorge Molina’s is the fourth positive case for coronavirus that Granada suffers this preseason, after the previous ones by the French Maxime Gonalons, already back to training once he has recovered, and the Cameroonian Yan Eteki and the Venezuelan Darwin Machís, these two last still low.
