Paolo Maldini and his son, Daniel, have both tested positive for coronavirus.
AC Milan confirmed the news in a statement.
“AC Milan confirms that Paolo Maldini, the club’s Technical Director, became aware of contact with a person who subsequently tested positive for Coronavirus and began to display symptoms of the virus himself,” the statement started.
“He was administered with a swab test yesterday, the result of which was positive. His son Daniel, a forward in AC Milan’s youth team who had previously been training with the First Team, also tested positive.
“Paolo and Daniel are both well and have already completed two weeks at home without contact with others. They will now remain in quarantine until clinically recovered, as per the medical protocols outlined by the health authorities.”
Awful news. We wish Paolo and Daniel the best in their recovery.
The news comes out just hours after Paulo Dybala confirmed he is suffering from the virus.
Dybala took to social media himself to reveal the news but said he is in good condition.
“Hi everyone, I just wanted just to inform you that we have received the results for the Covid-19 test and both Oriana and I have tested positive,” he wrote.
“Luckily we are in perfect conditions. Thanks for your messages.”
The Argentine became the third Juventus player to be suffering from Covid-19, after Blaise Matuidi and Daniele Rugani.
