Both McKennie and Ronaldo are in quarantine, for at least 10 days, and must test negative before rejoining their teammates.”I think that, at the moment, the protocols in force for the sports championships, both for Serie A soccer and for the sports associations and clubs are valid as long as they are respected,” said Spadafora. “And if there is someone who does not respect them, then the cases that we read in the news are created.”Under UEFA rules a player must provide evidence that he is no longer sick a week before a European match.Ronaldo, who will miss Juventus’ Champions League opener against Dynamo Kiev on Oct.20, must test negative on Oct.21 to play against Barcelona a week later.Topics :last_img read more
