Official: Inter in isolation too for Rugani

It is now official that Inter as well as Juventus will go into isolation and suspend training after Daniele Rugani tested positive for the Coronavirus.

The Nerazzurri released a statement confirming they have suspended training and any football activity until further notice, as they will begin the necessary procedures.

“Following Juventus FC’s announcement that their player Daniele Rugani has tested positive for COVID-19, FC Internazionale announce that all competitive activities have been suspended until further notice.

“The Club is currently taking steps to put all the necessary procedures into place.”

“The footballer, Daniele Rugani has tested positive for Coronavirus-COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic,” read a statement.

“Juventus Football Club is currently activating all the isolation procedures required by law, including those who have had contact with him.”

This also means that inevitably Juve will be unable to play the Champions League Round of 16 tie with Olympique Lyonnais, which is set for March 17.

Inter had been due to play Getafe in the Europa League tomorrow, but the game was called off by UEFA after the Spaniards refused to travel to Milan.
