Matteo Gabbia has been tested positive for Coronavirus, most likely catching it while on international duty.
Léo Duarte and Zlatan Ibrahimović are still testing positive for COVID-19 (as per yesterday’s round of checks), and today the club announced that another player is positive for the virus that has changed life on earth as we know it.
“Milan has been informed that Matteo Gabbia, currently with the Italy Under-21 national squad in Iceland, has tested positive for Covid-19,” the club announced via a statement on the official website on Friday.
Inter’s Alessandro Bastoni and Atalanta’s Marco Carnesecchi of the U21 squad already tested positive for COVID earlier this week but today three new cases were revealed. In addition to Gabbia, it’s believed that also Alessandro Plizzari has contracted the virus, in addition to someone on the squad.
Should Gabbia and Duarte not recover in time for the Derby, captain Alessio Romagnoli will return from injury straight to the starting XI and play in defense alongside Simon Kjær.
