This Wednesday, the health authorities of Turin recognized that several Juventus footballers could face legal action for rejoining their national teams in breach of the coronavirus rules that were established as a condition for the return of activity in Italy.
Those denounced were the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo , the Argentine Paulo Dybala , the Colombian Juan Guillermo Cuadrado , the Brazilian Danilo and the Uruguayan Rodrigo Bentancur , who left the team hotel without waiting for the results of the latest tests that were performed on them.
“The club itself told us that some players had left the place of isolation and therefore we will notify the competent authority, which is the prosecutor, of what happened,” said Roberto Testi, director of the health authority in the Piedmont region. quoted by the Ansa news agency.
It is that last week two cases of coronavirus were detected in the club, although they were not members of the squad, but the entire Juventus team was isolated since Saturday, a procedure that does not prevent them from training or playing, but does prohibit contact with the outside. While they were still awaiting the tests, these five players left for their countries within the framework of the double FIFA Date .

This is why the Local Health Agency (ASL) formally denounced Dybala , Cristiano and the rest of the Juventus players for having “violated isolation”, as published today by the Italian newspaper Tuttosport .
For their part, other players called up for their national teams such as the French Adrien Rabiot , the Italians Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci , the Welshman Aaron Ramsey and the Polish Wojciech Szczesny , chose to remain isolated, comply with the protocol and join their teams more late.
In the case of Dybala , who traveled to the qualifying matches against Ecuador and Bolivia , the Argentine Football Association (AFA) indicated that he did not contract Covid-19: “Argentina received the results of the tests carried out up to the day of the date, being the same in their entirety (players, coaching staff and staff) negative “.
For his part, Cristiano Ronaldo joined the Portuguese team and this Wednesday he faces Spain in a friendly and on Sunday he will travel to France for the duel against the world champion for the third day of the UEFA Nations League .
Danilo spoke from Rio de Janeiro and was sincere: “The Covid situation requires interpretation. I had all the negative tests. It was a personal choice that was left to us, “and added:” There are many doubts about the release, but I had all my negative tests. That will have to be discussed when I return to Italy ”. Brazil's first game will be against Bolivia on Friday at the Neo Química Arena stadium in Sao Paulo.
The outbreak of the pandemic in several European countries and in the United States affected the calling of several South American teams for the first two matches of the Qualifiers, which will be played between October 8 and 13.
