Sigh of relief as Madondo and rest of Wydad Casablanca players test for Covid-19 ahead of club training

Ugandans and Joel Madondo well wishers across the world are breathing a sigh of relief now that their player is one of the Wydad Casablanca players who underwent Coronavirus tests on Friday as the club is set to return to training tomorrow (Saturday) which definitely indicates he (Madondo) will be part of the training.

With news circulating last week that the Ugandan charismatic player was denied access to training with the rest of his teammates last week, this website took a step further to follow up the matter and according to our findings no team had resumed training as they had to first undergo Covid-19 tests.

At the beginning of this month (June), Madondo came into the public eye claiming unpaid salaries of five months which news attracted attention from different corners of the world a situation that quickly forced the club (Wydad Casablanca) to intervene into the matter although we can not authoritatively confirm whether all was sorted.

Madondo joined Wydad Casablanca in January this year from Uganda Premier League side Busoga United and has so far featured in two league games coming in as a 71st minute substitute for El-Moutaraji on his debut in which they lost 0-1 at home to Diffa El-Jadida in February.

He then got his first start days later against Youssoufia Berrechid in their 3-2 loss on the road under Sebastien Desabre before paving way for Ivorian 26 year old forward Gbagbo Magby.

The Moroccan Botola Pro league will be back on 24th July following a four month Covid-19 break with Wydad leading the table on 36 points from 18 games.
