Lecce midfielder Tachtsidis has COVID-19

Lecce midfielder Panagiotis Tachtsidis has tested positive for COVID-19.

The Greece international was tested in his homeland before flying back to Italy and it proved to be positive.

He will therefore stay in Greece for two weeks in self-isolation and be tested again before he is allowed to make the journey.

Lecce were relegated from Serie A and are beginning pre-season training this week.

The full squad – aside from Tachtsidis – attended the training ground today for blood and swab tests.

They were joined by new coach Eugenio Corini and his staff.
