Heidenheim (dpa) – Second division soccer team 1. FC Heidenheim will not take legal action against the responsible laboratory almost two weeks ago after the confusion over some corona tests.
“In the meantime, the incident has been handled by the DFL Sports Medicine / Special Game Operation Task Force. The lab responsible for the false test results has admitted that the DFL made mistakes,” said club president Holger Sanwald. the German news agency. “We then checked a laboratory change, which was not possible. We therefore agreed with the responsible laboratory about an improved process for the test process.”
In the run-up to the home game against VfL Osnabrück (1: 1) on October 25, four players and a member of Heidenheimer’s coaching and functional team were tested positive for the corona virus. The association then had two more sets of tests run by the Heidenheim clinic, all of which were negative. Ultimately, all professionals could be used in the game. Preparation was “seriously disrupted,” said Sanwald.
