Hi everyone Unfortunately I have tested positive for COVID-19 after being in contact with a family member that had been infected without us knowing. As per the protocol I will be self isolating and will miss the game with Crystal Palace. Both my family and I feel great, we are lucky enough to feel healthy and we are keeping a positive attitude. From home I will support Leeds and the Spainish National team as a supporter and I will be back on the pitch soon. Thank you for all those who have shown concern . MOT RM Buenas a todos, Os confirmo que he dado positivo en COVID-19 tras estar en contacto con un familiar que sin nosotros saberlo había sido contagiado. Como marca el protocolo, estaré en aislamiento total y me perderé el partido contra el Crystal Palace. Tanto mi familia como yo nos encontramos con mucha salud, ánimo y fuerza para poder superar esto y volver a la normalidad cuanto antes. Desde casa apoyaré al Leeds y a la Selección Española, siendo un aficionado más. Gracias a todos los que os habéis interesado y preocupado por mi estado, pronto estaré de vuelta. MOT!! RM.
