AC Milan have confirmed that goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu has tested positive for Coronavirus and therefore he will not be available for the next couple of games.
A statement on the club’s official website confirms that the Romanian has tested positive for the virus but is doing well and will continue the quarantine period according to the instructions received from the relevant health authorities.
Tatarusanu becomes the latest Milan player to be struck by Covid-19 this season after Brahim Diaz and Theo Hernandez both got it on October while Olivier Giroud also tested positive in September. There is a wave of new cases in Serie A currently due to the Omicron variant, and more could yet be on the way.
If he were to be out for 10 days, then Tatarusanu would miss the Roma game, the trip to Venezia, the Coppa Italia clash with Genoa and potentially the home match against Spezia on January 16, but of course return times vary.
