Four Sampdoria players in Italy have tested positive for Coronavirus, including one who had previously recovered.
A statement from Sampdoria read: ‘Four Sampdoria players have been tested positive for coronavirus for a second time with one of them tested positive for the disease.
‘They have been quarantined and are still asymptomatic and will be continuously monitored according to the protocol.
In March, five players from Sampdoria, Manolo Gabbiadini, Morten Thorsby, Albin Ekdal, Omar Colley and Antonino La Gumina, as well as team doctor Amedeo Baldari tested positive.
The government said on Thursday it was still reviewing the Italian Football Federation’s medical recommendations before considering the season’s resumption.
With players training separately and adhering to social distancing guidelines, teams have already been allowed to start practicing this week.
Full team practices are due to begin on May 18, according to Eurosport, but only if the medical procedure is accepted.
