Inter Worried Danilo D’Ambrosio Might Have Passed COVID-19 Onto Others Before Torino Game, Italian Broadcaster Reports

Inter are concerned they will have more players test positive for COVID-19 before Saturday’s match at home to Sassuolo, according to a leading Italian broadcaster.

Samir Handanovic became the second player to be confirmed as having the virus tonight, following Danilo D’Ambrosio’s diagnosis yesterday.

As per Sky Sport Italia, via FcInter1908.it, the Nerazzurri are worried D’Ambrosio might have passed COVID-19 onto other first-team players when he was with the squad before Sunday’s game at Torino.

Inter know they are not out of the woods yet, despite everyone else testing negative so far, because often people do not test positive until a few days later, after a period of incubation.

The report confirmed players would have another round of tests on Friday, with the results due on the morning of their next Serie A fixture against the Neroverdi.

Antonio Conte will therefore not know until as late as Saturday morning who he can count upon at San Siro.

Whereas D’Ambrosio is not a regular starter and will not give Conte too much of a headache, the report explained, Handanovic will be a big miss for Inter after his recent run of impressive form.

The Slovenian’s understudy Ionut Radu, who is now expected to start on Saturday, was not even given a chance to play in the Coppa Italia earlier this year but will have to be ready immediately.

Inter are at least fortunate in one sense that Handanovic and D’Ambrosio have tested positive in the week before the next international break, giving the club two weeks to recover them and any others who contract COVID-19.
