PSG and Ascoli have COVID cases

While PSG announce three positive COVID-19 cases – Neymar, Leandro Paredes and Angel Di Maria – Serie B side Ascoli have a new coronavirus issue too.

As teams get back to training for the new season, they are discovering how easy it is to pick up the virus while on vacation and outside of the protective bubble provided by clubs.

Ascoli announced that Miguel De Alcantara tested positive for COVID-19 before his trip back to Italy and remains in Brazil, self-isolating until he is given the all-clear.

Paris Saint-Germain, who faced Atalanta in the Champions League quarter-finals last month, confirmed they had three positive players in their squad.

L’Equipe claims they are Neymar, Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes.
