On Monday, Juventus announced that Alex Sandro had tested coronavirus positive and had already entered isolation.
The club’s statement is as follows: Juventus Football Club reports that a search was arranged for player Alex Sandro after the emergence of some mild symptoms, which showed that he was positive for Covid-19. In isolation, the player has already been put.
The Club shall, in consultation with the Health Authorities, establish the successful implementation of the protocols necessary to encourage the team to conduct training and competition activities.
It is unclear when Sandro, who started and ended up playing 83 minutes in the 4-1 win over Udinese on Sunday, started to have symptoms for the first time. The hope is that Sandro will end up being the only Juve player to get infected and that no epidemic will occur inside the squad, particularly this month during such an important part of the season.
As Cristiano Ronaldo and Weston McKennie did within a matter of days of each other during the first international break of the season, Sandro is the first Juve player to test positive for COVID-19. Among the Under-23 team, the most notable outbreak at the club came in November.
