The Rossoneri have been back training for three days and the club confirmed today that despite the rumours and Paolo Scaroni’s confusing words, there are no cases of COVID-19 in the club.
It is still unknown when or if the current Serie A season will be back, as the Coronavirus still very much exists in the world and in Italy in particular.
However, Milan got back to training this week with many of the players back at Milanello and more arriving in the next weeks (Zlatan Ibrahimović is expected back in Italy from Sweden on Monday and will then be in quarantine for 14 days before joining his teammates, while Franck Kessié is ‘stuck’ in Ivory Coast due to flight issues.).
There were reports in the Italian media over the past 48 hours that there are positive COVID-19 cases at Milan. These reports were seemingly confirmed by President Paolo Scaroni, who stated that “we have some infected players on the mend, but the two Maldinis are now doing well.”
However, the club released this official statement on Saturday: “Milan confirms that, based on all medical tests carried out to date on First Team players and staff, there have not been any positive cases of Covid-19. Players will continue their individual training program at Milanello and medical screenings will be completed for all players and staff reporting for training over the coming days.”
While training to get back on the field, the club also works on next season and the main candidate to be the coach in the 2020/21 season undoubtedly remains the German Ralf Rangnick.
