Italy: Mancini still positive for COVID

Italy CT Roberto Mancini is reportedly still positive for coronavirus and Alberico Evani must continue at the helm against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reveals the Italy coach is still positive for coronavirus, two weeks after he tested positive for the virus, as the latest test results arrived this morning.

Mancini is still in quarantine and will not be back in time for the match against Bosnia in the UEFA Nations League.

Evani has been in charge in the 4-0 win in the friendly against Estonia and followed up with a 2-0 win against Poland to take the Azzurri to the top of Nations League A Group 1.

He will continue in Bosnia this week, as Italy travel to Sarajevo aiming to stretch their unbeaten run to six consecutive games in the competition.
