Milan have confirmed that no first-team players or members of the technical staff have tested positive for the Covid-19.

President Paolo Scaroni’s comments have caused some confusion at the Serie A club about the possibility of some more coronavirus infections, which he referred to as “some infected players”.

The comments raised some concerns about an unknown lawsuit at the club, with technical director Paolo Maldini and his son Daniel returning in March for the only confirmed positive test.

However, in a statement issued on Saturday, the club said: “AC Milan has confirmed that there have been no positive Covid-19 cases based on all medical tests conducted on first-team players and technical staff to date.

“Players will continue their individual training activities at Millennial and medical screening will be completed for all players and staff reported to be training over the next few days.”

Milan players resumed separate training in Milan on Friday, two months after a strict lockdown was imposed in northern Italy, with group sessions allowed from May 18.

The Serie A season is on hold but clubs are committed to fulfilling the 2019-200 campaign without premature consequences, as has happened in France and the Netherlands.

Milan was seventh when the competition was stopped.
