Former Brazilian coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo (68) announced that he had tested positive for the coronavirus but was “asymptomatic”. He currently coaches the Palmeiras club.
“During the tests that Palmeiras regularly does with its players and the technical committee, I tested positive for Covid-19. I am already quarantined at home, as a punishment, but as I am asymptomatic, I do not feel anything, I am calm, without pain or anything, I am followed by the doctors of Palmeiras, “said the Brazilian in a video posted on his Instagram account.
The test result was known on Friday evening. The Palmeiras medical service immediately notified the technician, who has been out of business. Last week, Luxemburgo had successfully undergone an operation to remove his gallbladder. Four days after this surgery, he had returned to club facilities, but it was not until Friday that he was able to conduct training for his team.
