“We also request the utmost respect over the identity of the two positive cases.”The team were due to travel to Portugal on Monday for the closing stages of the Champions League which is being held in Lisbon as a precaution against COVID-19 rather than risk having teams travelling across Europe for home-and-away ties.The self-contained eight-team tournament will be staged behind closed doors, starting on Wednesday with the final set for Lisbon on August 23. Spanish side Atletico Madrid on Sunday reported two positive coronavirus tests, just four days before they face Leipzig in Portugal for a place in the Champions League semi-finals.”On Saturday, all members of the first team and the club’s party to Lisbon underwent tests as required by UEFA protocols to participate in the quarter-finals of the Champions League,” said a club statement.”Among the results known today, two positives have appeared and they are self-isolating in their respective homes.” Local quarantines Spain has so far been one of the countries worst affected by the coronavirus pandemic, with 310,000 registered infections and 28,500 deaths.Although most sports have returned from a months-long lockdown caused by the virus, there are concerns that numbers of cases are beginning to rise again.In recent days, Spain has seen local quarantines imposed in the Basque Country, Catalonia and Aragon.Protective face masks have been made compulsory in several busy areas, especially in the Madrid region.Last month, Atletico’s city rivals Real Madrid announced forward Mariano Diaz had tested positive for COVID-19.Sevilla, meanwhile, reported an unnamed player had also contracted the illness.Real have since been knocked out of the Champions League but Sevilla are still involved in the Europa League.They play English side Wolves in their quarter-final in Duisburg, Germany, on Tuesday.The Champions League had been put on hold since March because of the virus with the last-16 stage only completed on Friday and Saturday.In their statement on Sunday, Atletico were keen to reassure football authorities, explaining that they had followed a very strict protocol even after the end of La Liga season on July 19. Weekly tests were carried out on July 26 and August 2.For its ‘Final Eight’ tournament in Portugal, UEFA has planned strict protocols — each team will have to provide test results before travelling to the country, and will be tested again on the eve of their first match.Each positive test will require the individual to self-isolate. It was not revealed whether the two positive cases involved players or backroom staff.Atletico said UEFA as well as the Spanish and Portuguese football and health authorities have been informed and that a fresh round of tests will be carried out on the squad and support team.They admitted this could mean last-minute changes to travel schedules as well as accommodation plans in the Portuguese capital. “The club will coordinate the new schedules with UEFA and as soon as there is a new plan it will be made public,” added the statement.

“I don’t see any sign of us signing Loic Remy. I hope he’s paid for his ticket! I have not invited him.” Confirming loan midfielder Kim Kallstrom will return to parent club Spartak Moscow in the summer, Wenger said he will do everything in his power to retain coveted duo Sagna and Fabianski. Wenger will aim to use supporter acclaim surrounding full-back Sagna to try to keep him in north London. “I want Sagna to stay and I hope the reception from the fans convinces him that we love him here,” Wenger said. “We have two players at the end of their contracts – Sagna and Fabianski. If it’s down to me, they both stay.” After slipping up 3-0 to Aston Villa on the season’s opening day, Arsenal completed the rest of their home fixture run without further defeat. Wenger admitted Arsenal’s failure to sustain a title challenge revolved around a goal shortage, but refused to lament not recruiting an extra striker. “I would just say, to be brutal in our first analysis, we missed a few goals, compared to the teams who scored the most goals, and we missed some big away games by conceding too many,” Wenger said. “The regret is not there (for not signing another striker), because we missed offensive players (through injury) at an important part of the season. “The solution is not always outside. The solution is as well inside your club where the disadvantage of having many injuries is you always have to play the same players. “Then, of course, they score less goals because they are a bit jaded. ” West Brom boss Pepe Mel acknowledged the Baggies will be forced to rebuild their squad this summer, with 13 players out of contract. The Spanish manager said he would be “extremely happy” to remain in charge next season, despite looming contract talks with the club’s board. “There are 13 players who are going to be out of contract, so it’s pretty much like making up a new team, so West Brom has got a lot of work to do,” Mel said. “After the Stoke City match, we will have a meeting and then we will decide whether or not I’ll be at West Brom next season. “Right now we still need one more point to ensure that we’re safe, and, after seeing what Sunderland have done in the last month, absolutely anything’s possible. “What we’re aiming to do is keep West Brom in the Premier League, and I can tell you now I would be extremely happy to be at West Brom next season.” Wenger moved to reassure supporters he will sign a new contract, as pledged, once the season is complete, after leading his team on a lap of honour following their 1-0 Barclays Premier League victory over West Brom in their final home match. The Frenchman also ruled out a move for Loic Remy, despite the QPR striker attending Arsenal’s routine triumph – secured by Olivier Giroud’s first-half header. “Don’t worry, don’t be too impatient, my last time will come, you’ll get rid of me one day, don’t worry!” Wenger said, reiterating his intention to sign a new contract. “I’ve said many times my word is my word. I’m from a period where you didn’t need a pen to commit. “Look at me, look at me. You will see me again. “It’s not linked to the FA Cup final. It was important, of course, to be in the Champions League – that’s for sure. “No. I’ve had no moments of doubt. If I had moments of doubt it would have been a few years ago when I had to say no to many offers and commit to this club and I was under a lot of pressure.” Wenger said he did not invite Newcastle loan forward Remy to the Emirates Stadium, joking he hoped the France hitman had paid for his ticket. The Gunners chief also admitted he will fight to keep out-of-contract stars Bacary Sagna and Lukasz Fabianski at the club next term. “Honestly, I’ve just been informed that Loic Remy was here – I didn’t know,” Wenger said. Press Association Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger claims he has never doubted he will remain at the Emirates Stadium helm beyond the summer.
