Paolo and Daniel Maldini have Coronavirus
Milan director Paolo Maldini and his son Daniel have both tested positive for the Coronavirus, announced the Rossoneri.
“AC Milan confirms that Paolo Maldini, the club’s Technical Director, became aware of contact with a person who subsequently tested positive for Coronavirus and began to display symptoms of the virus himself,” read a statement from AC Milan.
“He was administered with a swab test yesterday, the result of which was positive. His son Daniel, a forward in AC Milan’s youth team who had previously been training with the First Team, also tested positive.
“Paolo and Daniel are both well and have already completed two weeks at home without contact with others. They will now remain in quarantine until clinically recovered, as per the medical protocols outlined by the health authorities.”
Daniel is 18 years old and last month became the third generation of the Maldini family to wear the Milan jersey in Serie A.
Paolo is 51 years old and was a club legend as a defender, returning to become their technical director in 2018.
They are the first figures from Milan to test positive for Coronavirus.
This news comes just hours after Juventus confirmed Paulo Dybala is the third player to test positive, after Daniel Rugani and Blaise Matuidi.
