COVID-19: Milan Assistant Coach Brings Bad News Ahead Of Derby

Daniele Bonera missed the derby clash against Inter, early this Sunday morning, after the Milan assistant coach was found positive for COVID-19.

The former Rossoneri central defender was confirmed positive after complaining of being unwell.

According to Milan in a statement: “Daniele Bonera had a fever and underwent a smear test at his home yesterday before being confirmed positive for COVID-19.

“Bonera is now at home and in good condition. All the smear tests in our squad yesterday have found them negative.”

While Bonera needs to undergo quarantine, Stefano Pioli’s coaching squad will face Inter in the first round of Serie A season 2020-21.

Bonera will also not help the San Siro champion to start the Europa League campaign next week when they will be tested by Scottish champions Celtic next Friday.

Italian law requires anyone infected with the pandemic to be isolated for at least 10 days and to be found negative before being allowed to terminate the program.

Milan received a boost when Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s touch could be billed after two smear tests he underwent last week were negative.

The 39-year-old striker tested positive for COVID-19 last month and was sidelined in four games.
