JUVENTUS have announced that Paulo Dybala has finally recovered from coronavirus after the Argentinian ace tested positive for Covid-19 four times.
The 26-year-old has been plagued by the illness for the last six weeks with the player one of the first Juve players to contract the deadly bug.
And having been forced to remain in lockdown with his partner Oriana Sabatina, Dybala is now free to leave his house at long last.
A statement from the Old Lady read: “The player underwent a double check, which saw him test negative.
“Paulo Dybala performed, as per protocol, a double check with diagnostic tests (swabs) for coronavirus Covid-19, which came back with negative results.
“The player has, therefore, recovered and will no longer be subjected to the home isolation regime.”
Dybala added on social media: “Many people talked in the past few weeks… but I can finally confirmed I am healed.
“Thank you once again for your support and my thoughts on all who are still suffering from it. Take care.”
Dybala admitted coronavirus took a huge toll on his health and even left him struggling to breathe.
The Argentina superstar, who has 91 goals in 216 for Juve since joining in 2015, said last month: “I had stronger symptoms, I got tired very quickly, when i wanted to train I was short of breath after five minutes.
“There we noticed something was not right and through the tests the club did we were told that we were positive.
“From there we had more symptoms, such as cough, tired body and when we slept I felt very cold, but from the club they had told us we were going to be fine so we had to be calm.”
Dybala will now be looking to return to training ahead of Serie A’s potential return, with some of his Juve team-mates already returning to the club’s Turin HQ.
However, one of the stars not involved is Cristiano Ronaldo.
He has just returned to Italy from his native Madeira and will be in quarantine for the next fortnight.
