The entire first-team squad of Inter Milan have all given negative results in testing for the coronavirus, the Serie A club said on Friday.
Almost all Serie A clubs have re-started with individual basis training this week after following two months of stoppage due to the coronavirus pandemic, with all players and staff subjected to testing.
Sampdoria said previously that they have found three new cases which were positive, Florentina reported six positive cases of three players and three back-up staff while Torino has one.
“FC Internazionale Milan announces that all the medical tests the first team underwent were negative,” the club said in a statement.
“Optional individual training sessions will begin this afternoon.” Inter Milan added.
“The club maintains the utmost attention to the preventive measures for the health of the players and all members of the club, in compliance with all government guidelines and the protection of public health.”
Gazzetta dello sport said that the players underwent both swab and antibody testing.
Although training is underway, it’s not certain that the government will give permission for Serie A to restart this season and it’s currently reviewing the Italian Football Federation’s medical protocol.
