Players And Coaches With Coronavirus

Covid-19 is a virus that has brought nothing but panic and sadness to the face of not just football lovers, but sports lovers across the globe. 

The virus has proven a little difficult to curb and it is gradually fading away the ecstasy that the 2019/2020 football season has brought.

Here we bring you the updated list of players that have tested positive for the virus and how they are responding to treatment.


The issue of coronavirus in Germany seems to be under control to some extent.

Since the announcement of Timo Hubers and Jannes Horn of Hannover 96 alongside Paderborn defender Luca Kilian, no player has tested positive. 

Kilian is rumoured to have recovered from the virus, why Huber and Horn are still under supervision.


The Serie A has had the most cases, with over 10 confirmed cases already reported.

Daniele Rugani was the first name that popped up, but the virus has since spread to Sampdoria – with former Southampton forward Manolo Gabbiadini becoming the second Italian to pick up the virus. 

Sampdoria later confirmed that team-mates Albin Ekdal, Fabio Depaoli, Bartosz Bereszynski, Morten Thorsby and Antonnio la Gumina had also tested positive alongside club doctor Amedeo Baldari.

The affected players have all been isolated and are now in what is defined as a rather stable condition.

In addition, Fiorentina players Patrick Cutrone, Dusan Vlahovic and German Pezzella have all tested positive for the virus. 

They are all currently in self-isolation and under stiff medical observation.


Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta are the only two confirmed cases in the Premier League.

The Arsenal boss is feeling better according to his wife and midfielder Lucas Torreira as he has been communicating with his players.

For Odoi, he released a video telling fans not to panic as he is rather in a stable condition and hoping to return to action as soon as possible. 

Meanwhile, measures are in place to see out the virus as all facilities are currently on lockdown until further notice.


Reports also have it in France that South Korea international Hyun-Jun Suk, who plays for Ligue 2 side Troyes, has tested positive for the virus.
