Five Barcelona players tested positive for coronavirus but the news was not made public, according to reports.
Catalan radio station RAC1 made the claim this week as Barcelona prepare to return to action on June 13.
The quintet were not named but it is understood they tested positive for the disease back when the Covid-19 crisis first started.
Neither of the five players showed any symptoms and were only made aware to the fact they had the disease once they underwent tests.
Two members of staff are also believed to have tested positive for coronavirus but Barcelona felt it was the responsibility of La Liga to make that information public, reports AS.
The La Liga leaders are concerned that the five players who suffered from coronavirus will be more injury prone, however they are all believed to be back in training.
