Bruno Alves has COVID-19

Bruno Alves is one of the seven players at Parma who tested positive for COVID-19, confirms his agent. ‘This shows it can happen to anyone.’

There are in total seven players within the Ducali squad who contracted Coronavirus, but the club has not named them due to privacy reasons.

However, agent Oscar Damiani told Parma Live that Alves was one of them.

“Bruno is fine, he is positive, but asymptomatic,” said Damiani.

“If a model professional like him can catch it, someone who is so careful to stick by the rules, it means this illness really can happen to anyone.

“In my 30 years working in football, I’ve never met a player more focused on the details than Bruno Alves. He’s strong, though, and will emerge from this soon.”
