Juventus have confirmed that Daniel Rugani and Blaise Matuidi have all returned from coronavirus and tested negative.

Rugani was the first of the high-profile confirmed cases in Serie A when tested positive for Covid-1 last month.

Matudi follows up as Juve’s second case, though neither of the player’s symptoms developed.

A month later, the two returned in two negative tests.

Bianconeri’s statement read: “The players have become so healthy and no longer suffer from home isolation.”

The two could not take any action because of the suspension in the epidemic.

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC), however, is looking to resume the season in the coming months.

FIGC president Gabriel Gravina praised Jude for their outspoken position against issuing Scudetto because they were at the top when it came to playing time.

Maurizio Suri’s men are 12 points away with second-placed Lazio, a point clear.
