“Arturo has been hospitalised and isolated from the group for more than 72 hours in a preventive measure indicated by the medical team, due to the presentation of previously reported severe pleural tonsilitis.”

The midfielder acknowledged the diagnosis on Instagram.

"I will recover soon," he said in a post. "And I ask you, please, whoever can be vaccinated to do so!"
