Juventus forward, Paulo Dybala and his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini have tested positive for coronavirus for the fourth time in six weeks.
The Argentina confirmed on March 21 that he and his girlfriend Oriana had contracted COVID-19 after his first positive test of the disease. According to Spanish programme El Chiringuito, Dybala has had four tests done to him in the span of six weeks and the recent test just came back positive.
Dybala recently spoke out about fighting the disease and explained how he has been struggling to breathe and also claimed he and his girlfriend were feeling much better, but it seems Juventus forward is struggling to shake off the illness.
“Luckily [we are] much better, these days we do not have any symptoms,” Dybala said.
“I had strong symptoms, I got tired very quickly, when I wanted to train, I was short of breath after five minutes. There we noticed that something was not right and through the tests the club did we were told that we were positive.”
“From there we had more symptoms, such as cough, tired body and when we slept I felt very cold, but from the club they had told us that we were going to be fine so we had to be calm.”
Dybala was one of the three Juventus stars to contract the coronavirus after Daniel Rugani and Blaise Matuidi were confirmed cases.
Serie A teams, including Juventus are scheduled to return to training on Monday 4.
Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said players would be able “to undertake training individually from 4 May, in groups from 18 May, and then we’ll evaluate if there are the conditions to allow the season to be completed.”
He added: “We need to complete all the discussions to ensure that if we do reach that stage, we’ll do so in the utmost safety and security,”
“We are passionate about sport and don’t want our athletes to get sick.”
“I’m passionate for football. Like many Italians, I initially found it strange that the championship could be interrupted or suspended but I think that even the most ardent fan understands that there wasn’t an alternative.”
