Lionel Messi and Co gear up for the return of La Liga as five Barcelona players tested positive for coronavirus.

The La Liga set to resume from June 11 but the five players from the Catalan side were not named during the broadcast, although it was claimed that the positive tests were returned towards the start of the crisis.

According to Catalan RAC1 claim that five Barcelona players showed no symptoms of the disease and were only aware they were positive after undergoing blood tests but two staff tested positive.

All five players who were affected have recovered from the virus and are now believed to be back in full training.

Barcelona will return to action away at Mallorca on June 13 after the Spanish government gave LaLiga the green light to return this month.

Spain has been one of the hardest-hit countries during the pandemic, with around 240,000 confirmed cases and over 27,000 deaths.
