OFFICIAL: Juventus confirm Daniele Rugani has tested positive for #Coronavirus after celebrating with team mates

Juventus have confirmed that Italy international defender Daniele Rugani has tested positive for Coronavirus.

In a statement released on Wednesday evening, the club announced that Rugani has been diagnosed with the Coronavirus, but is currently asymptomatic.

“Juventus Football Club is currently activating all the procedures of isolation planned by the regulations, including a check on all those who had contact with him.”

The Bianconeri had a training session today, so this would effectively mean putting the entire squad and staff into quarantine.

This news comes after Federico Bernardeschi announced he was going to self-isolate in the Juventus Hotel due to an abundance of caution to protect his family.

Rugani is the first Serie A player to be diagnosed with the Coronavirus, which has so far struck over 12,000 Italians, killing 827 people.
