Fiorentina striker Cutrone test positive for coronavirus

On-loan Wolves forward Patrick Cutrone is one of two more players at Fiorentina to test positive for coronavirus.

The Italian, 22, returned to Serie A in January on an 18-month loan deal, six months after joining Wolves.

On Saturday, Fiorentina confirmed that Cutrone, Argentine defender German Pezzella and physiotherapist Stefano Dainelli all had coronavirus.

Serbian forward Dusan Vlahovic tested positive for the virus on Friday.

In a statement the club said: “Patrick Cutrone and German Pezzella and physiotherapist Stefano Dainelli underwent tests, as they were showing some symptoms.

“All three [were] positive and are in good health at their homes in Florence.”

In a post on Instagram, Fiorentina captain Pezzella added: “The symptoms [have] disappeared and I am at home following the procedures indicated by my club.”

Italy is one of the countries worst affected by the pandemic.

All sport in the country has been suspended until at least 3 April and there are also a series of strict quarantine measures, including a ban on public gatherings.
