AC Milan left-back Theo Hernandez has tested positive for Covid, his club said on Wednesday, just days after his France teammate Adrian Rabiot contracted the virus. The 24-year-old played alongside Rabiot in France’s Nations League semi-final against Belgium last Thursday, with a 90th-minute winner. Rabiot was ruled out of the final after testing positive for Covid, but Hernandez played a full 90 minutes in the world champions’ 2-1 victory over Spain.

“Theo Hernandez, who returned from the national team, has tested positive for a swab done at home,” Milan said in a statement. “The relevant local health authorities have been informed and the player is doing well.”

Second-placed Milan in Serie A hosted Hellas Verona on Saturday.
