The third wave of the pandemic has already been noted in Malaga CF and its structure. The Martiricos team has been put in check after knowing a positive in Atletico Malagueno a subsidiary of the Blue and Whites that plays in Group IX of the Third Division. A member of the coaching staff in good contact with the players has tested positive forcing us to change all the plans for this week for the first team and the subsidiary itself.
An Atletico Malagueno who has been quarantined and who has requested to suspend this weekend’s match against Antequera. Nothing would happen if it were for the usual transfer of players between B and the first team. Precisely on Sunday and coinciding with the Copa del Rey match against Granada Pellicer gave free rein to the youngest. With the exception of Alberto Quintana in addition to Cristo Ramon and Ismael Casas the rest of the regulars of the first team played a late game against Torremolinos at the same time. Regular players in Pellicer’s calls and training sessions were exposed.
Larrubia, Ale Benitez, Haitham, Juan Cruz, or the goal Gonzalo were in contact with the positive in Covid-19 detected although not all have had to miss the preparatory session. The Málaga often have trouble completing the call and even once. Pellicer is forced to shoot an average of between six and seven players with a subsidiary file each day. Not being able to count on them is a major setback in the Nules coach’s plans. It is not known how long these players will be in the dry dock, but it can be estimated.
The usual quarantine time taking into account that there are no more positives is ten days. This is how Luis Munoz had to suffer in his flesh a week ago for a similar case. At the moment the absences have already been noticed in the training where several youth A players have had to attend. A positive one that has put Malaga in check.
