Morón is grateful for the support samples he has received since it was known that he suffered from the virus. “We will come back stronger,” he tweeted, accompanied by a message. “Unfortunately, I will not be able to travel today with my teammates to Marbella to start the preseason. I have tested positive in the PCR test and, although I feel fine, I will have to wait a few days to join the team, ”he says.
