Juventus striker Paulo Dybala revealed that he has become the third Juventus player to test positive for coronavirus while former AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini revealed that he and his son have also been infected.
“Hi everyone. I just wanted to let you know that we have received the Covid-19 test results and that Oriana (Sabatini, his girlfriend) and I are positive,” the Argentine striker, Dybala tweeted.
Italian champions Juventus said in a statement that Dybala had been self-isolating earlier this week. “He will continue to be monitored. He is well and is asymptomatic.”
Further more, the club said Maldini, now the technical director at Milan, and his 18-year-old son Daniel, a youth team player, were also battling the virus.
A statement from AC Milan said, “Paolo and Daniel are both well and have already completed two weeks at home without contact with others. They will now remain in quarantine until clinically recovered, as per the medical protocols outlined by the health authorities.”
Juventus teammates Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have also tested positive for the disease which claimed almost 800 more lives, bringing the total in Italy to 4,825.
