The forward is one of three Viola players who tested positive, along
with German Pezzella and Patrick Cutrone, as well as a member of their
fitness staff.

“I was at home, asleep and I just woke up covered in sweat with a fever,” said Vlahovic on his Instagram live stream.

“I
measured my temperature and it was about 37 degrees, so I took some
medicine and called the club. My fever got worse and by the evening it
was at 39, so I went to hospital. I didn’t think it was that bad… In any
case, I am ok and resting.

“All I can do now is rest and in
14 days it’ll be over. I just have to stay away from people. I haven’t
seen any of my teammates, but I think they’re doing alright.”

The
entire country is in lockdown due to the crisis and Vlahovic joked
there’s one Fiorentina player well-suited to the circumstances.

“This
is like a vacation for Chiesa, he’s always in his little cell! Chiesa’s
crazy about videogames. I won’t dare play him at FIFA, because he does
literally nothing else with his time, so he’ll definitely beat me. Pol
Lirola is addicted to it too.”
