Sky: Calhanoglu still testing positive for Coronavirus – when he should be back

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu will almost certainly miss Saturday’s game in Bologna, according to the latest from Sky Italia.

The broadcaster (via MilanLive) are reporting that Calhanoglu has tested positive for Coronavirus in the most recent test he carried out, and therefore he will not return to training tomorrow and will not leave with the team for Bologna.

Some patience is of course needed because of the complex nature of the virus, but it usually takes 13-14 days for players to come back, and although Theo Hernandez is now back (albeit having had a false positive), it must be remembered that Calhanoglu in recent days also suffered some symptoms of the disease, such as fever and widespread aches across his muscles.

It will take time before the No.10 can return to the group, but the hope is that he will be back for the game against Crotone next week.
