Sampdoria youth player has COVID-19

COVID-19 continues to sweep through sporting figures, as a Sampdoria youth team player tested positive, as well as ex-Inter and Samp forward Ricky Alvarez.

Sampdoria Under-18 striker Lorenzo Di Stefano announced via social media that he has been diagnosed with Coronavirus, although he is asymptomatic.

“There is nothing to be ashamed of, in fact, I am talking about this because I want to send out the message that everyone needs to be careful, seeing as I caught the virus from someone who – like me – is asymptomatic.

“I want to thank everyone who sent messages and assure you I am fine.”

Meanwhile, Velez Sarsfield in Argentina confirmed two of their players have tested positive for COVID-19.

They are Thiago Almada and former Sampdoria and Inter player Ricardo Alvarez.
