Napoli squad clear of COVID

Napoli have announced that all the COVID-19 tests on their players and staff have come back negative after 14 cases at their recent opponents Genoa.

There will be another round of swabs tomorrow, as the Coronavirus has a long incubation period, and so more tests will be required before deciding if their game against Juventus this weekend can go ahead as planned.

Genoa had two players test positive – Mattia Perin and Lasse Schone – before Sunday’s 6-0 defeat against Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo.

Tests performed on Monday morning found another 12 positive cases between squad and staff, reportedly including another eight or nine players.

They are now in quarantine and it’s very likely this weekend’s Serie A match between Genoa and Torino will be postponed.

It is reported, but has not yet been confirmed, that six of the players who tested positive on Monday had played against Napoli on Sunday.
