Juventus defender Rugani: I'm stronger for recovering from coronavirus

Juventus defender Daniele Rugani says he's stronger for recovering from the coronavirus.

Rugani was the first Serie A player to test positive for COVID-19 back in March.

“I'm very well; I'm in good spirits. I went through a strange month, but the important thing is that everything went well and I count myself lucky," he told Sky Sport Italia.

“It all started with a dose of fear in hearing the news. I was afraid of having transmitted the disease to my partner, who is pregnant.

“To be on the safe side, I decided to go immediately into isolation at Continassa and it was the best and most correct thing for everyone; I have to thank the doctors for their professionalism and for their skill in reassuring us.

“Certainly, getting out of this situation has given my partner and I a great deal of strength and positive energy."
