Coronavirus: Juventus players Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi make full recoveries

Juventus players Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have both made full recoveries from coronavirus.

France international Matuidi confirmed he had been diagnosed with the virus a week after Italy defender Rugani became the first Serie A player to test positive.

A club statement read: “Rugani and Matuidi underwent, as per protocol, a double-check with diagnostic tests (swabs) for the coronavirus.

“The tests came back with negative results. The players have, therefore, recovered and are no longer subjected to the home isolation regime.”

Rugani and Matuidi were two of three Juventus players to contract coronavirus after Argentine forward Paulo Dybala also tested positive.

It was announced last week that sport in Italy will remain suspended after its prime minister extended the nationwide lockdown to May 3.
