🚨 BREAKING: Juventus defender Rugani tested positive for coronavirus

Serie A giants Juventus have announced that Italy centre-back Daniele Rugani has tested positive for coronavirus.

A statement on the Juventus website noted: “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.”

Rugani has made only seven appearances for Juventus this season and was an unused substitute in his side's last match - a 2-0 win over Inter Milan held behind closed doors on Sunday.

He has won four Serie A titles with Juve and played for Italy seven times, last featuring for the national team in 2018.

The news comes at a time the Serie A has been suspended until 3 April because of the outbreak of coronavirus in Italy.

Juventus’ next scheduled game is on 17 March against Olympique Lyonnais in the Champions League.
