Panic as Juventus cancel training, put all players in quarantine after 3 stars and manager test positive for coronavirus


The development became significant after three stars from their last opponent Pianese tested positive for coronavirus

– A statement released by Juventus mandated their players to remain in their respective homes till March 8

Juventus Under-23 team have been thrown into panic amid fear of coronavirus after three players from Serie C side Pianese tested positive for the deadly disease alongside their manager.

The Old Lady’s third-tier side played Pianese in their last encounter in which they narrowly cruised to a victory with a lone goal.

Amid reports of coronavirus spread in Italy, three players from their last opponents have now been tested positive for the deadly virus, forcing Juventus to take a strong control measure on their team.

And as it stands, the Italian side has put all their Under-23 players in quarantine and stopped all training pronto, pending the time there will be clear updates on the fast-spreading virus.

Although no player has shown symptoms, a statement released by the club has mandated all players to remain in their homes until March 8.

Since its outbreak in China, coronavirus has been grossly responsible for the death of thousands across Asia, and Italy is the only country in Europe with the highest number of reported cases (1,049) with over twenty-nine dead.

Last week, a couple of Serie A fixtures were cancelled to prevent further spread of the disease including Inter vs Sampdoria and Atalanta vs Sassuolo, while yesterday the much-anticipated Juventus vs Inter clash was rescheduled as the virus took a dangerous turn in Italy.

The entire world has been thrown into a serious panic since the outbreak of the deadly disease which emanated from China in which hundreds are currently battling for survival.

Until he was said to have been confirmed a carrier of the disease, King Paul Akpan was playing in the Italian third division side with Pianese.
