Copa Libertadores Argentines to file complaint
Boca Juniors will reportedly file an official complaint with the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) after Santos’ goalkeeper John participated in the Copa Libertadores game after being allegedly tested positive for COVID-19.
The goalkeeper had no symptoms, but he was already aware that he was infected and that is believed to be the reason why Santos were not willing to go to the dressing rooms at half time.
As reported by TNT Sports, John remains in Buenos Aires, waiting for a flight to take him to Brazil, while Boca believe that Santos concealed the information of their goalkeeper testing positive for coronavirus.
It remains to be seen how CONMEBOL will react to the Argentine side’s complaint and whether there will be any sanctions imposed on the Brazilian club.
Meanwhile, Santos defender Wagner Leonardo was also tested positive for COVID-19 but did not come off the bench.
