Napoli: Rrahmani positive for COVID

Napoli have announced Amir Rrahmani has tested positive for coronavirus after his return from international duty with Kosovo.

The Kosovo international had suffered an injury in the 1-0 win against Moldova on Wednesday and CT Muharrem Sahiti feared it could be a serious blow for the former Hellas Verona defender.

Napoli have now confirmed the defender has contracted COVID-19 on his travels and has been placed in home isolation.

“Following the swab carried out this morning, upon returning from his national team, Amir Rrahmani has tested positive for COVID-19,” Napoli wrote in a statement.

“The player, who hasn’t been in contact with the team group, will observe a period of home isolation.”

Napoli face Milan on Sunday night, when the League leaders arrive at the San Paolo.
