Juventus defender Daniele Rugani has said he’s “fine” after testing positive for the coronavirus, encouraging the public to “respect the rules” in staving off the respiratory illness.
The Bianconeri released a statement on Wednesday via their official website confirming Rugani had been diagnosed with COVID-19, though it specified the player was “currently asymptomatic.”
Rugani, 25, wrote on Twitter (h/t Omnisport, via Yahoo): “You will have read the news and that’s why I want to reassure all those who are worrying about me, I’m fine. I urge everyone to respect the rules, because this virus makes no distinctions! Let’s do it for ourselves, for our loved ones and for those around us #thankyou.”
