AC Milan forward Olivier Giroud has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Milan have stated that, since the game against Cagliari, Giroud has not had any close contact with any other member of the squad and they are therefore hopeful that no other player has had the virus passed on to them.
Stefano Pioli has, as a result, been presented with a problem. The Rossoneri face Lazio in Serie A on September 12, so the Frenchman is in a race against time to recover. Otherwise, Pioli may have to risk Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s fitness.
