Leonardo Bonucci has admitted to having a difficult time in the past few weeks after ending his 14-day self-isolation period.

Juventus announced that they have shut down all their activities while all their players and staff went into voluntary self-isolation shortly after their 2-0 victory over Inter Milan earlier this month.

The action was taken following defender Daniele Rugani became the first Serie A player to be tested positive for coronavirus. He was then joined by teammates Blaise Matuidi and Paulo Dybala.

Expect Matuidi and Dybala, all other players have completed their two-week quarantine period.

Juve vice-captain Leonardo Bonucci recently stated that he feels fortunate to have avoided the virus. He also said that the current scenario has brought him closer to his family.

“I’m fine, but these days have been tough – self-isolation is over today. I showed no symptoms and I was lucky,” Bonucci informed, as reported by Football Italia.

“With my children and wife at home, the days have been eventful and we haven’t been bored. I’ve played in the garden with my son Lorenzo like we used to.

“These are things that you see a little less now, so it moved me. We’ve decided that now we’ll do it once a day.”
