Cristiano Ronaldo He would have violated the security rules against the coronavirus by traveling to Turin knowing that he was infected if he did so without permission from the authorities, said Thursday the Minister de Deportes of Italy, Vincenzo Spadafora.

The minister considered it this way in an interview on the radio program “Il Mix delle cinque”, in which he was asked whether the footballer had circumvented isolation rules when traveling to Turin, Where he lives.

“Yes, I think so, if no specific authorizations have been given by the health authoritiesSpadafora replied briefly, without going into further consideration.

However, the Turin team reported in an official statement a day before that his star had returned to Italy “on a medical flight authorized by the competent health authorities in order to continue his preventive isolation at home. “

The president of Juventus of Turin, Andrea Agnelli, assured this Thursday at the end of the shareholders’ meeting that he did not “honestly” know how the events had developed. Agnelli limited himself to explaining that he only applies the protocol of the Federation and ignored the Ronaldo case.

I apply the federal protocolIf later one is caught by a radar at 150 kilometers per hour, I cannot explain why the radar worked or why it is there. I am a sports leader, if you ask me why you have violated a state law, you should ask the prefect, to the minister or whoever he wants, “he settled.

The Portuguese striker tested positive for the coronavirus last Tuesday in the concentration of Portugal But this Wednesday he landed in Turin after 5:00 p.m. local time (15:00 GMT) with a medical flight authorized to quarantine his home.
