Ex-Brazil & Real Madrid coach tests positive for Covid-19

Jul 05, 2020 17:51 IST

Former Brazil and Real Madrid coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo has revealed that he has tested positive for Covid-19. The 68-year-old currently coaches Brazilian club Palmeiras. The club said in a statement that Luxemburgo will stay home until he has recovered. The coach said in a video published on his social media channels that he is asymptomatic for now. Luxemburgo coached Brazil from 1999-2000. Spanish giants Real Madrid signed him in 2004 and fired him almost one year later, shortly after a 3-0 defeat to arch rivals Barcelona.
