It appears bad news isn’t over for Juventus, they just announced a new quarantine after one of their new transfers tested positive for Covid. 

Juventus keeps getting bad news that is Covid-related, they have to go into fiduciary isolation once again. This isn’t a replay of the same news we did a couple of weeks ago, it’s a fresh case of coronavirus within the club. American midfielder Weston McKennie was just announced to have tested positive for Covid-19.

This pushes the whole squad back into quarantine as they are in the midst of Cristiano Ronaldo’s recovery from the same virus. At this pace, the Italian giants could fall flat ahead of their upcoming commitments in various competitions.

This is yet another setback that the club has to go through during the global pandemic. Juventus made it clear that they would follow the protocol established by the Italian government from the moment they got news of their first player who tested positive. 

Juventus gets younger categories infested as well. 

The Italian club announced several infected cases via their official website. McKennie wasn’t the only affected player from the latest round of tests, they also announced the U-23 player Lucas Rosa and a staff member tested positive alongside McKennie.

“Juventus Football Club announces that, during the checks provided for by the protocol in force, the player Weston McKennie has tested positive for Covid 19. In compliance with the regulations and the protocol, the team entered into fiduciary isolation this evening.

“This procedure will allow all persons negative to the controls to carry out regular training and match activities, but will not allow contact with people outside of the group. The Club is in constant contact with the competent health authorities.”
