COVID-19: Sampdoria statement, 13 March 2020
U.C. Sampdoria can confirm that footballers Omar Colley, Albin Ekdal, Antonino La Gumina, Morten Thorsby and club doctor Amedeo Baldari have tested positive for COVID-19, following the positive result for Manolo Gabbiadini a few days ago. All of them are in good health and are at their homes in Genoa.
The club would like to reiterate that it has carried out all the necessary procedures in accordance with the law: all the club’s offices are closed and the players, club officials and staff potentially infected are in voluntary self-isolation at home. All sporting activities have been suspended and essential administrative and organisational operations are being carried out remotely.
President Massimo Ferrero, the directors, Claudio Ranieri and the team ask everyone to follow the national and regional orders rigidly so that we can deal with this difficult period courageously for the common good. Together we can do it. Stay at home.
