Hungary coach Marco Rossi tests positive for Covid-19

Hungary coach Marco Rossi has tested positive for Covid-19, the Hungarian football association (MLSZ) said Wednesday, a day ahead of his team’s Euro 2020 play-off final with Iceland.

“After previous continuous negative test results, Marco Rossi’s latest test showed a positive result,” said the MLSZ in a Twitter post. 

“He was immediately separated from the players and staff members,” it said. 

The rest of the squad have all tested negative, the MLSZ said in a further statement on its official Facebook page.

Last week the MLSZ said that the Italian coach’s assistant Giovanni Costantino tested positive for the virus. 

Rossi, 56, who took over as Hungary coach in 2018, is bidding to steer the Magyars to their second consecutive European Championship after appearing at Euro 2016.

The winner of Thursday’s clash with the Nordic side behind closed doors in Budapest will take the final spot in Euro 2020 Group F alongside Germany, France and holders Portugal.
