As was expected, AC Milan have registered a few more Covid-19 cases following two positive tests earlier this week. This was announced by the club late this evening.
The Covid-19 surge has created a chaotic situation for Serie A as the league has ordered the games to go ahead, while local authorities are ordering some teams to isolate. This is a reality that could come into play for Milan.
The Rossoneri will face Roma tomorrow and in the span of three days, five players have tested positive for Covid-19. Ciprian Tatarusanu was the first, then Samu Castillejo (rumoured) and the likes of Davide Calabria, Fikayo Tomori and Alessio Romagnoli (rumoured).
The three new cases were confirmed by Milan on their official website this evening via a statement, which you can read below.
“AC Milan can confirm that three players have tested positive for COVID-19 following tests carried out on the squad today,” it read.
The text will be updated once more is known. As things stand, Pierre Kalulu and Matteo Gabbia will be the starting centre-backs for Milan tomorrow, should the game go ahead.
