Tested positive for coronavirus, Blaise Matuidi has been confined since March 11 to his home in Turin. This Tuesday, the wife of the French international published a message on social networks to explain that her husband will be entitled to two weeks of additional isolation: “Cool! We just re-signed for another 15 days, ”quipped Isabelle Matuidi.
This decision to extend the quarantine is linked, according to various transalpine media, to the fact that Matuidi is not yet completely rid of the virus. To be considered officially “cured”, two negative tests must be taken in a row. This would not be the case for the 32-year-old Piedmont midfielder.
Two other positive cases
A few days after the announcement of his contamination, the former Parisian was however reassuring about his state of health. “Today I remain positive. I am an asymptomatic carrier of the virus, aware of the privilege of being a professional footballer and of benefiting from this title of regular and excellent medical monitoring, he underlined. If it were not, I would probably never have known. I am positive, I am strong, morale is good, that of my family too. ”
Besides Matuidi, two other Juventus Turin players, the Italian Daniele Rugani and the Argentinian Paulo Dybala, also contracted the coronavirus. Their state of health is of no concern.
