Cannavaro back to China, under quarantine

Fabio Cannavaro arrived in Shanghai on Friday and is going through obligatory quarantine before being able to join up with his team Guangzhou Evergrande.

The 47-year-old former Italian skipper posted a picture on social media on Friday morning showing he landed in the Shanghai airport.


The Guangzhou side will gather next Friday to kick off their winter training without the presence of Cannavaro, currently under a 14-day quarantine.
