Inter Milan announced this Thursday that the Uruguayan midfielder Matías Vecino and the Dutch defender Stefan de Vrij tested positive for Covid-19 after tests carried out on Wednesday, which determined the suspension of the match against Sassuolo for the 28th date of the Series TO.
The Italian club reported that both players are already complying with the corresponding quarantine and that in this situation it was decided to immediately suspend any type of team activity for four days (until Sunday March 21 inclusive).

For this reason, the match against Sassuolo scheduled for Saturday was suspended. In addition, the club ensured that no player from the Inter squad will be able to attend the call for their respective national teams for the FIFA date at the end of March, where, for example, UEFA has planned to begin its Qualifiers for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
On Monday March 22, before the eventual resumption of activities, the swabs will be repeated to the entire team technically led by Antonio Conte.
Inter is first in Serie A with nine points ahead of Milan (65 to 56) with ten dates remaining for the end of the championship.
Curiously, Vecino had returned to play for Inter’s first team last Sunday after a long official inactivity that lasted since last July. “Now I’m fine and I’m very happy to play again, but above all for the victory; It was a very long and difficult period, but I needed to break the ice and re-enjoy these feelings that you only have when you play ”, the Uruguayan had declared after the recent victory against Torino by 2 to 1 on date 27.
