Juventus have confirmed that defender Daniele Rugani has tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday night.
The 25-year-old centre-back has been a fringe player for the reigning Serie A champions this season, making just seven appearances in all competitions.
The Italy international was however on the bench for Juve just days ago when the club beat Inter 2-0 behind closed doors.
Confirmation of Rugani’s condition comes just days after Serie A was put on hold until at least April with his club now committed to following proper protocol.
“The footballer Daniele Rugani has tested positive for Coronavirus-COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic,” Juventus said in a club statement.
“Juventus Football Club is currently activating all the isolation procedures required by law, including the census of those who have had contact with him.”
