Coronavirus: Matuidi tests positive
France international Blaise Matuidi has become the second Juventus player to test positive for coronavirus after team-mate Daniele Rugani was diagnosed last week.
“The player, as of Wednesday 11 March, has been in voluntary home isolation,” read a statement on the Serie A side’s official website.
“He will continue to be monitored and will follow the same regime. He is well and is asymptomatic.”
The 32-year-old midfielder has played a key role for the defending Serie A champions this season with 31 appearances in all competitions.
Matuidi was part of the World Cup winning French national team in 2018 and has won two domestic league titles with Juventus since joining the club from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017.
