Former Barcelona star and Atletico Madrid striker, Lius Suarez is set to miss out on a reunion with former club Barcelona on Saturday after testing positive for Covid-19 while on international duty with Uruguay.

The 33 year old striker is not the only player in Uruguay national team to test positive for covid-19 as it was also confirmed by  Uruguay that  stand-in goalkeeper Rodrigo Munoz and a member of staff had also tested positive for the virus.

Suarez who scored a penalty in Uruguay’s 3-0 win over Colombia on Friday is currently on  self-isolation and will  miss the World Cup qualifier against Brazil on Tuesday, and will also miss the match between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona on Saturday.

Suarez is the second player to test positive for the virus while on international duty, after Liverpool forward Mo Salah contracted the infection last week.
