Gianluigi Donnarumma and Jens Petter Hauge have COVID-19, in addition to three other members of the squad.
Milan face Roma at Stadio San Siro this evening for a huge match but a few hours before kick-off they got some bad news as two players and three staff members have been found positive for COVID-19.
“Milan can announce that results determined from a series of swab tests conducted yesterday evening have returned from a laboratory with positive indications of Covid-19 for Gianluigi Donnarumma, Jens Petter Hauge and three other staff members,” a statement on the website of Milan reads.
“Whilst they are all asymptomatic, they have immediately entered isolation in their homes and the relevant local health authorities have been informed. Today, the players and staff were tested again for Covid-19, as is required by protocol, and there have been no other positive test results.”
Donnarumma and Hauge join Matteo Gabbia on the list of Milan players who are unavailable due to Coronavirus. Léo Duarte and Zlatan Ibrahimović previously had it during this season and healed, while Sandro Tonali had the virus before joining the club from Brescia this summer.
Ciprian Tătăruşanu will replace Donnarumma in goal tonight and make his official debut for Milan.
