Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has tested positive for COVID-19.
Bonucci returned to Juventus after the international break with national team Italy and the FIGC confirmed last night four staff members tested positive for Coronavirus.
“Leonardo Bonucci, upon returning from the Italian national team, this morning underwent a diagnostic molecular test for COVID-19 which came back positive,” a statement from the club read.
“The player has already been placed in home isolation.”
The positive test means Juventus will be without Bonucci when they take on Torino this Saturday in the Turin derby. The Old Lady will also miss the services of Merih Demiral who also tested positive for COVID while on international duty with the Turkey team.
