Inter and Croatia star Brozovic tests positive for COVID-19

Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic has tested positive for coronavirus while on international duty with Croatia. 

The Croatian Football Federation (HNS) announced Brozovic’s COVID-19 result on Friday, along with a member of staff, and confirmed he is in self-isolation. 

Additional testing took place prior to Saturday’s Nations League clash with Sweden after Croatia defender Domagoj Vida returned a positive test in Istanbul on Wednesday. 

“The test results showed two positive results, for the national team member Marcelo Brozovic and a staff member of the national team,” a statement read. 

“Both were immediately isolated from the other members of the national team. Inter were informed of the positive test.”

 Rezultati dodatnog testiranja hrvatske reprezentacije na SARS-CoV-2 pokazali su dva pozitivna nalaza, Marcelu Brozoviću i članu šireg stožera, kod kojeg je izgledno da se radi o pozitivnom nalazu uslijed stare infekcije (produljena pozitivnost).

Vida was informed of his positive test during the midweek showdown with Turkey. 

The 31-year-old played in the first half before being withdrawn at half-time of the thrilling 3-3 draw. 

Croatia – runners-up at the 2018 World Cup – are third in League A Group 3, seven points adrift of Portugal and France. 

Brozovic has made seven Serie A appearances this season and 10 across all competitions for Inter, scoring once. 

Inter – winless in four matches in all competitions – are seventh in the league and five points behind leaders Milan ahead of the November 22 visit of Torino.
