The coronavirus has arrived at FC Barcelona. The club’s director of scouting in Brazil, André Cury, has tested positive after submitting himself to a test. Cury confirmed that he is well and is quarantined with his wife, who also tested positive for Covid-19.

Niether Cury nor his wife are hospitalised and remain at thier house in São Paulo. Their symptoms are light and they are not having trouble breathing. This is the first case of coronavirus among Barcelona personnel. Even though he is not a player or member of the coaching staff, Cury is an important piece in the Azulgrana organisation.

He is in charge of studting and finding players in the Brazilian market, which has been one of the most successful for the Catalán giants. He was a direct participant in the signings of Neymar, Jr., Arthur Mello, Yerry Mina and Paulinho Bezerra, who made 49 overall appearances for the Blaugrana in 2017-18 and now plays for Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande (managed by Luiz Felipe Scolari).

It’s possible that Cury contracted teh virus while visiting Porto Alegre. This past Friday the president of Internacional of Porto Alegre, Marcelo Medeiros, announced that he has the coronavirus. Currently in Brazil they have had twnety or so deaths and over a thouand infected, but the goverment “led” by Bolsonaro has not taken any important protection measures and even has gone so far as to suggest business should go on as normal, which is contrary to all medical and scientific data.

El coronavirus ya ha llegado al FC Barcelona. El encargado de realizar las funciones de ‘scouting’ del conjunto culé en Brasil, André Cury, ha dado positivo tras someterse a las pruebas. Cury ha afirmado que se encuentra en buen estado, aislado en su casa con su mujer, que también contiene el Covid-19.

Ambos se encuentran confinados en su domicilio de Sao Paulo y no están hospitalizados porque presentan síntomas leves y no tienen dificultades para respirar. Se trata del primer caso de coronavirus de un empleado del Barça. A pesar de no tratarse de un jugador de la plantilla, ni de un miembro de la directiva o del staff técnico, Cury es una pieza importante en el organigrama azulgrana.

Es el encargado de encontrar y someter a estudio a jugadores en uno de los mercados que más éxitos ha dado al conjunto catalán, el brasileño, y ha participado directamente en fichajes como los de Neymar, Arthur, Yerry Mina o Paulinho, que hizo 49 aparencias para el conjunto Culé durante la temporada 2017-18, marcando 9 goles y juega ahora con el club chino Guangzhou Evergrande (dirigido por Luiz Felipe Scolari).

Una de las posibilidades de contagio que podría haber tenido Cury habría sido en su visita a la ciudad de Porto Alegre. De hecho, el presidete del Inter de Porto Alegre, Marcelo Medeiros, anunció el pasado viernes que estaba contagiado del virus. En Brasil ya hay una veintena de muertos y más de mil afectados, pero el gobierno liderado por Bolsonaro no ha tomado medidas importantes.
