Bonucci: 'It's been tough'

Leonardo Bonucci admits “these days have been tough” but confirms isolation is over for Juventus staff members not showing coronavirus symptoms.

Juve’s squad has been in quarantine for the past two weeks after Daniele Rugani became the first Serie A player to test positive for COVID-19.

Rugani has since been joined by Blaise Matuidi and Paulo Dybala, but Bonucci is confident the worst is behind the Bianconeri. 

“I’m fine, but these days have been tough: self-isolation is over today. I showed no symptoms and I was lucky,” he told JTV.

“With my children and wife at home, the days have been eventful and we haven’t been bored. I’ve played in the garden with my son Lorenzo like we used to.

“These are things that you see a little less now, so it moved me. We’ve decided that now we’ll do it once a day.

“Every morning we get a little message with the exercises we have to do. I usually train around 3pm, first on some exercise bikes, then push-ups, abs and tractions.

“I’m also lucky enough to have a slope in my garden. That can be useful for a few repeated runs.

The Italy defender then discussed some parts of his personal life.

“I really like [actor] Checco Zalone, I have a passion for fishing and, as a child, I often went with my grandfather.

“As for the most exciting moment in life, it was surely when my son Matteo passed that bad period in his life. Now he’s fine.”
