Meanwhile Daniele Rugani reassured fans that he is “fine” after the Juventus defender became the first Serie A player to test positive for the novel coronavirus.
The announcement came just a day after the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) admitted that the current season might not finish due to the outbreak.
“You’ve read the news, so I want to reassure everyone who’s worried about me, I’m fine,” Rugani wrote on Twitter.
“I urge everyone to respect the rules, because this virus makes no distinction! Let’s do it for ourselves, for our loved ones and for those around us.”
Alternative options being considered should the season not be concluded, include staging play-offs, not having a champion for 2019-20 or declaring the current standings final.
Serie A has already been postponed until April 3 after the country’s prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, issued a country-wide lockdown on Monday, including a ban being put in place on public gatherings.
Italy now has the most coronavirus cases outside of China with more than 12,000 and on Tuesday Angelo Borrelli, head of Italy’s Civil Protection Agency, said that at least 168 people had died in the past 24 hours.
That took the total number of deaths in the country to 631.
