Pioli, 55, tested positive on Saturday and the club has now confirmed that the 56-year-old Assistant coach has been infected as well.
“AC Milan can announce that Giacomo Murelli, who has been in isolation since Saturday after Stefano positive results, also has a mild case. These positive results were confirmed by a second molecular test undertaken yesterday. Murelli is fine and will continue to self-isolate in his home”, the club said on its website.

Stefano had handed over the club’s coaching to his assistant, and now, the infection will make the both of them miss Sunday’s league game at Napoli and possibly the Europa League return fixture at Lille on November 26, having lost 3-0 to the French club at the San Siro.
