Serie A club confirmed that it's entire first-team squad have given negative results in testing for the coronavirus.

Almost Serie A clubs have re-started training on an individual basis this week following a two-month stoppage due to the coronavirus pandemic and all players and staff are subject to testing.

Milan announces that all the medical tests the first team underwent were negative, the club said in a statement. "Optional individual training sessions will begin."

Inter added: “The club maintains the utmost attention to preventive measures to safeguard the health of the players and all members of the club, in accordance with all the governmental and public health protection guidelines.”

Gazzetta dello Sport said the players underwent both swab and antibody testing.

Although training is under way, it is not certain that the government will give permission for Serie A to restart this season and it is currently reviewing the Italian football federation's medical protocol.

City rivals AC Milan resumed earlier in the week with club technical director Paolo Maldini warning on Friday “not going back on the pitch would be a disaster.”

Former Italy captain Maldini, together with his 18-year-old son Daniel, a Milan youth team player, have both recovered from coronavirus.

“You have to be careful, but not to resume would be a disaster from all points of view,” 51-year-old Maldini said during a live Instagram chat on Friday with former Milan teammate Filippo Inzaghi.
