Albiol joins Brais Méndez, Rodrigo, Soler and Fornals to train in Las Rozas

The selection has moved tab after the positive of Sergio Busquets. Locked up in the Ciudad de Fútbol de Las Rozas, confined by the infection of the Blaugrana captain, those responsible for La Roja have called five players to train in a “parallel bubble” to the one already created for those called up, with whom they never they will get mixed up and not even focus on the operations center of the national team. Luis Enrique has decided to use Raúl Albiol (Villarreal), Rodrigo Moreno (Leeds), Pablo Fornals (West Ham), Carlos Soler (Valencia) and Brais Méndez (Celta), who will exercise separately and individually in the federative facilities. A preventive measure in anticipation of the possible consequences that the ‘Busquets case’ could entail.

“The players invited to the training sessions –this is how the national team defines the four– will remain outside the bubble of the Ciudad del Fútbol and will go daily to Las Rozas after having passed the relevant daily tests before their arrival and during their stay. Its definitive incorporation to the Euro 2020 list will be assessed based on the results obtained in the coming days, “La Roja commented in a statement. All are doubts and uncertainty in the concentration, pending the PCR and if more cases will appear throughout the week. In addition, after Tuesday’s game against Lithuania, who will play the U21 in Butarque, another group of footballers will arrive who “will join the training sessions of the senior team under the same conditions as the previous ones. They will train at different times and in no case will they mix with those called up ».

The road to the European Championship has suddenly been complicated, with a positive that has made the captain abandon the concentration and confine himself to his Barcelona home. Those responsible for the selection have acted immediately to cover the eventual needs of the team. “In anticipation of the possible consequences that could lead to the positive of Sergio Busquets, the coaching staff has decided to incorporate a group of footballers to complete training during the next few days under the command of Luis Enrique within a parallel bubble.” Now there are four, but more will arrive shortly. The coach has until Saturday at 9:00 p.m. to make changes to the list, which would be final.
