Coronavirus: If the virus doesn’t go to Zlatan, Zlatan goes to the virus – Ibrahimovic launches fundraiser

Published

on

“If the virus doesn’t go to Zlatan, Zlatan goes to the virus.” Ibrahimovic has launched a fundraiser for hospitals.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has launched a fundraiser to raise money for Humanitas hospitals as he called on the world to “kick the coronavirus away”.

More than 8,900 people have died from the coronavirus, with Italy, where Ibrahimovic is playing with Milan, hugely impacted.

Italy has seen more than 35,000 cases, with nearly 3,000 deaths, a tally second only to China.

Ibrahimovic launched a fundraiser on Wednesday and it had exceeded €150,000 as he aims for €1million for Humanitas hospitals.

“Hi, I’m Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Italy has always given me so much and in this dramatic moment, I want to give back even more to this country that I love,” he said in a video posted on Twitter.

“I decided together with the people who are working with me to create a fundraiser for Humanitas hospitals and to use my communication power to spread the message wider.

 

“It’s a serious issue and we need concrete help that’s not just about a video. I count on the generosity of my colleagues, of all professional athletes and of those who want to make a small or large donation according to their possibilities to kick this virus away.

“Together we can really help hospitals and doctors and nurses who selflessly work everyday to save our lives because today we are the ones sharing for them.

“Let’s together kick the coronavirus away and win this match and remember, if the virus doesn’t go to Zlatan, Zlatan goes to the virus.”

Serie A has been suspended until April 3, with Italy in lockdown due to coronavirus.

Coronavirus: Dybala feeling ‘much better’ after suffering with COVID-19

Published

on

Juventus star Paulo Dybala has confirmed he suffered with strong symptoms of coronavirus, but is now recovering.

Paulo Dybala is feeling “much better” after experiencing strong symptoms of coronavirus over the past week.

Dybala confirmed on March 21 that he and his girlfriend Oriana Sabatini had tested positive for the virus, which has caused the postponement of sport across the globe.

The Argentine international said that both he and Sabatini were feeling fine, though – in a video call posted to Juve’s official Twitter account – Dybala has revealed he subsequently came down with strong symptoms.

“I feel good, much better in fact, after having had some strong symptoms for a couple of days,” Dybala said.

“Today I feel much better, without any symptoms and I can move much better, so I will try to train again.

 

 

“After having attempted to in the days where the symptoms were strong, I felt uncomfortable very quickly and I couldn’t get any air so I couldn’t do anything.

“After about five minutes I felt really tired and my body felt heavy, my muscles hurt and I had to stop.

“But luckily both me and my girlfriend feel much better now.”

Dybala was the third Juve player to test positive for COVID-19, after Daniele Rugani – who was the first Serie A player to be diagnosed with the illness – and Blaise Matuidi.

COVID-19 has taken hold in Italy over the course of the past month, where there have been 86,498 confirmed cases and 9,134 deaths.

Reports: Pogba to Juventus, Dybala or Pjanic to Man Utd

Published

on

Manchester United could be set to gain a Juventus star if Paul Pogba returns to Turin.

Juventus may be able to bring Paul Pogba back to Turin, but it could cost them a star.

Pogba, 27, has been linked with a move away from Manchester United, having returned to Old Trafford in 2016.

But the Serie A champions could be ready to give up a leading player in their bid to bring the France international back.

TOP STORY – POGBA TO JUVENTUS, DYBALA OR PJANIC TO MAN UTD

Manchester United midfielder Pogba could return to Juventus for money plus Paulo Dybala or Miralem Pjanic, according to Tuttosport.

 

Dybala almost headed to Old Trafford during the close season but is reportedly close to signing a contract extension with Juventus.

Pjanic, meanwhile, has made 32 appearances in all competitions this season, having arrived at Juve from domestic rivals Roma in 2016.

ROUND-UP

– The talk around Lautaro Martinez possibly leaving Inter to join Barcelona continues. Sport reports Barca are advancing in their bid to convince Martinez, with their project and potentially playing with Lionel Messi at club level their key points.

 

– With his Real Madrid future uncertain, Marcelo could be set for a move. Juventus are again interested in the left-back, according to Marca.

– Staying at the Santiago Bernabeu – Lucas Vazquez could also be heading for a Real Madrid exit. AS reports there have been no discussions over a potential contract extension with the forward, whose deal expires next year.

– Martin Braithwaite only arrived at Barcelona in February, but the LaLiga giants are already considering their options. Sport says Barca will not sell Braithwaite for less than €18million, which is what they paid to land the forward. Everton and West Ham are reportedly interested in the Denmark international.

– Arsenal are seemingly considering a move for Nabil Fekir again. The Premier League club were linked with the forward last year, but the Daily Star reports the Real Betis man is back on their radar as a potential replacement for Dani Ceballos, whose loan from Real Madrid ends at the conclusion of the season.

Coronavirus: AS Roma to dedicate next match to frontline medical staff

Published

on

Medical workers will receive free tickets and reduced rates moving forward at Roma following the coronavirus crisis

Roma will dedicate their first match following the coronavirus pandemic to medical staff around the world, with 5,000 free tickets to be given to frontline workers.

Elite sport has been halted by the global crisis, with more than 650,000 confirmed cases and over 30,000 deaths.

Only the United States has more cases than Italy, where Serie A has been suspended until at least May 3.

Roma last played at Cagliari on March 1, winning 4-3, but the club have a plan for their next game in front of a packed crowd at the Stadio Olimpico.

The Serie A side said they will dedicate their “first home match in front of fans after football returns to honouring and celebrating the medical workers who have been on the frontline of the battle against COVID-19”.

A statement added it was “an extension of the club’s ‘HEROES’ series on social media, which pays tribute to individual doctors, nurses and medics in Italy and around the world”.

 

The promise of 5,000 free tickets for medical workers would “allow fans to show their appreciation for the selfless efforts of the medics during this crisis”, Roma explained.

They will also honour workers who have lost their lives, introduce a reduced price rate for medical staff from the start of next season, and donate a proportion of each ticket sale to the club’s fundraising campaign.

Roma president James Pallotta added: “It is impossible to overstate just how much we appreciate the work of the medical staff in Italy and around the world.”

Pallotta has donated €75,000 to the club’s COVID-19 fundraising project, which has brought in more than €530,000.
