Barcelona Stars, Lionel Messi Go In Quarantine As Coronavirus Hits Laliga

Barcelona

Barcelona has become the new club to be affected by the coronavirus epidemic with Lionel Messi joining quarantine with his teammates.

The news came just one day after rivals Real Madrid's squad were also placed on lockdown after a basketball player at their training headquarters tested positive for the deadly virus.

Spain's top-flight and second division were now suspended in a desperate bid to stop the spread of coronavirus.

After the news that LaLiga has been shelved for two-game weeks, Barcelona announced that it would cancel all first-team practice as well.

Infobae reports that players from Quique Setien will now continue to practice at their homes with similar training being monitored by personal trainers from the club.

A statement from Barcelona read: "In view of the health situation and following the advice of the medical managers of the Club, the first soccer team suspends all its operation until further notice." This decision was taken following this morning's meeting of the first football team with President Josep Maria Bartomeu, Dr Jaume Padros and Dr Antoni Trilla.
