Juventus confirms that all the COVID-19 tests have returned negative.
However, the guidelines have been modified recently, making them all-clear if they have two negative swab tests in 48 hours. Milan applied the same technique to Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he returned from Sweden.
In any case, “For several days now, the Juventus players have been carrying out individual training sessions in small groups, all whilst keeping their distance.
“In application of the indications by the FIGC’s Federal Medical Scientific Commission, yesterday, the whole team underwent diagnostic tests which came back with negative results; in the next few days training will resume in larger groups.”
These are excerpts from a club statement released this afternoon to update fans on the coronavirus situation within the squad.
Indeed, Blaise Matuidi, who had COVID-19 in March, and Sami Khedira took part in the training session today.
Gonzalo Higuain and Adrien Rabiot, the last to return home after the lockdown, are also expected to return to training, according to Corriere dello Sport.
They returned later than the others from abroad, so they had to go to quarantine. Higuain and Rabiot will now be welcomed back to the training center tomorrow.
