Sampdoria centre forward Manolo Gabbiadini has tested positive for the deadly coronavirus.
He becomes the second Serie A player to test positive for the virus after Juventus confirmed on Wednesday that their defender Daniele Rugani has coronavirus.
The player confirmed on his twitter handle stating that he’s tested positive for the virus but he’s doing well and urges everyone to follow the rules and act carefully.
“I tested positive for Coronavirus, too. I want to thank everyone who wrote to me, I have already received a lot of messages. I still want to tell you I’m okay, so don’t worry. Follow all the rules, stay home and everything will be resolved.” The former Southampton player said.
The virus is gradually getting out of hands in most Europeans countries and has taken a toll on various professional footballers, most of who ‘ply their trade’ in Italy.
