Italian Media Detail Why Inter Furious With UEFA Over Achraf Hakimi COVID-19 Test Debacle

Inter are furious with the way that UEFA handled the Achraf Hakimi Covid-19 testing situation, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

The report details how the 21-year-old Moroccan wing back tested positive for the virus hours before the Champions League clash against Borussia Monchengladbach on Wednesday, forcing him to miss the game.

After the game, the Nerazzurri carried out their own test, which returned negative this morning, allowing the player to feature in today’s clash against Genoa.

Wednesday’s test was a false positive, the report continues, and the Nerazzurri are unhappy considering the decision was made so close to the game, despite him previously testing negative.

Hakimi was then allowed to stay with the team for hours and could have potentially infected them. There was not enough time to organise another test that day.

The Nerazzurri hoped the situation would have played out in the same way as the Stephan El Shaarawy, who tested positive before Italy’s game against Poland and then later tested negative.
