Juventus enters lockdown after Weston McKennie positive for COVID-19

Juventus Turin, Barcelona’s rival in the group stage of the Champions League, will be confined from this Wednesday after the latest coronavirus tests detected the positive of American midfielder Weston McKennie, the club reported in a statement.

“Juventus Football Club communicates that, during the controls provided for by the protocol in force, the positive for Covid-19 of the player Westo McKennie emerged. In accordance with the regulations and protocol, the group enters as of tonight in isolation”, it is read in the official note published on the website of the Turin club.

“This measure will allow all negative elements to develop normal training and match activity, but will not allow contacts outside the group,” he adds.

Juventus’ squad and coaching staff were already confined for five days in early October, between days 2 and 7, after two staff members tested positive for coronavirus.

As Juventus indicated, the confinement is planned for the sanitary protocol approved by the Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) and allows players who present a negative test to continue exercising and competing.

The next match for Andrea Pirlo’s team is scheduled for Saturday, October 17 at the Crotone field. Three days later, Juventus will debut in the Champions League against Dinamo Kiev.

The Turin team also received the news on Tuesday of the positive for coronavirus from Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, who left the concentration of the Portuguese team and traveled to Turin on Wednesday to be quarantined at his Italian home.

Juventus’ Champions match against Barcelona is scheduled for October 28 and, in order to participate, Cristiano must deliver a negative coronavirus test before October 21, in accordance with UEFA protocol.
