Werder Bremen reported that one of his players was put in quarantine for two weeks a day before the resumption of the Bundesliga.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, football in Germany’s top flight is set to return Saturday, having been suspended since March.
Werder explained the unnamed player did not test positive but that COVID-19 was contracted by a member of his “close circle.”
As for a club tweet, it is the result of positive coronavirus testing of ‘someone in their circle.’
As per the sources, a member of the first team of SV Werder Bremen was put in a two-week quarantine after a member of his circle tested COVID-19 positively earlier this week.
Since the player himself tested the negative during all previous test rounds, the decision to bring him under quarantine was taken following the health authorities in Bremen.
Sporting Director Frank Baumann added: “The player has tested negative on two occasions since. As a result, there is no risk to our team and our employees, which indicates that the medical procedure is working and that infected individuals can be detected early to take the appropriate steps.”
Since being halted due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Bundesliga is expected to be the first of the big European leagues to restart.
Bremen is scheduled to face Bayer Leverkusen on Monday, which is 17th in the table.
Earlier in May, players from Brighton and Torino were also screened positive. The players are put under quarantine. The club did not reveal the names of the players under player privacy law. Read more about Brington and Torino players here.
