Bad news for Roma as their captain Edin Dzeko tested positive for Coronavirus. It was Dzeko himself to officialize the news through his official Instagram account.
Dzeko’s post read:
“Hello everyone, unfortunately, I am positive for Covid19, and as you know, I will have to respect the quarantine period. I want to reassure everyone who knows me; fortunately, I have no particular symptoms. For a few days, I’ll be forced to stay away from my teammates, but with my mind and heart, I’ll stay with them, starting on Sunday: Go guys! Forza Roma!”
The Bosnian is now isolated and will stay at home for the next 10 days, after which he will undergo a new Covid test. Dzeko is not the first case of coronavirus infection at Roma. Before him six other players tested positive: Antonio Mirante, Carles Perez, Bruno Peres, Justin Kluivert, Riccardo Calafiori and Amadou Diawara.
Dzeko will of course skip this Sunday’s Serie A match against Genoa. He will also not join his National teammates for the upcoming Nations League games against the Netherlands and Italy scheduled on the 15th and 18th of November.
