Leverkusen (AP) – Bayer Leverkusen’s attacking player Leon Bailey has tested negative for the corona virus in his home country of Jamaica and is expected to fly to Germany on Monday.
The 23-year-old attended the birthday party of the coronavirus-infected Olympic sprint champion Usain Bolt (34) three weeks ago and then fell into self-isolation.
Originally, Bailey wanted to fly to Germany shortly afterwards to spend the rest of the quarantine in Leverkusen. However, according to information from Bayer, Jamaican authorities prevented his private flight to Germany shortly before departure due to corona-related local hygiene regulations.
Leverkusen won the first competitive game of the season in the DFB-Pokal 7-0 against fourth division club Eintracht Norderstedt and started the Bundesliga season on Sunday with an away game at VfL Wolfsburg. Whether Bailey can get into the selection is open. His club has no information about the player’s fitness.
