Dybala revealed on social media that he and his girlfriend Oriana received positive COVID-19 tests. Juventus confirmed Dybala’s status in a statement released on their website and said he has been in voluntary isolation since March 11 and is asymptomatic.
“Hi everyone, I just wanted just to inform you that we have received the results for the Covid-19 test and both Oriana and I have tested positive,” Dybala said on his Twitter page. ”Luckily we are in perfect conditions. Thanks for your messages.”
The 26-year-old Argentinian International is the third member of the Italian Serie A defending champions to have the virus, following the announcement that center-back Daniele Rugani and France World Cup winner Blaise Matuidi also tested positive.
Dybala has made a big impact since joining the team in 2015 scoring 64 goals in 152 games to help Juventus continue a Serie A winning streak of eight consecutive league titles. He has been named to the Serie A Team of the Year three times.
Serie A suspended its season on March 9 due to the coronavirus pandemic that has caused Italy to record the highest death toll so far in the world.
