Juventus defender, Daniele Rugani, has contracted the latest deadly Covid-19 known as coronavirus.
According to Goal.com, the Juventus defender tested positive to coronavirus a day after Nottingham Forest and Olympiacos owner, Evangelos Marinakis announced that he has contracted the deadly coronavirus.
The 25-year-old centre-back Rugani has been a fringe player since the Serie A champions this season, making just seven appearances in all competitions.
The Italy international was on the bench for Juve just days ago when the club beat Inter 2-0 behind closed doors.
Although, Rugani’s condition confirmation comes after Serie A was suspended until April at least with his club now committed to following proper isolation protocol.
“The footballer Daniele Rugani has tested positive for Coronavirus-COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic.”
“Juventus Football Club is currently activating all the isolation procedures required by law, including the census of those who have had contact with him,” the Juventus club said in a statement.
