Salzburg (AP) – At Bayern Munich’s Champions League opponent Red Bull Salzburg, six players from different countries have tested positive for the corona virus.
As the Austrian football series champion further announced, the result of the tests conducted exclusively on national players before the international break was announced on Sunday evening. “The affected players are currently without symptoms and have already been quarantined,” the report said. The names of the players involved have not been disclosed.
The other team members are in team quarantine and are only allowed to commute between their home and the training location or competition location. “In addition, all national teams have been canceled for the time being”, the Salzburg team announced. For the Austrian national team, team boss Franco Foda had nominated de Cican Stankovic, Andreas Ulmer and Albert Vallci from Salzburg, who are now missing in the international matches against Luxembourg (November 11), Northern Ireland (15) and Norway (18).
The club officials were surprised by the positive tests. Because a corona test evaluated Friday before Sunday night’s game against Rapid Vienna (1: 1) was negative for all players, according to the club. On Monday, the entire team would undergo another series of tests “in order to understand the various test results in such a short time and in general to obtain the greatest possible clarity about the degree of contamination among the players”.
After the international break in the Champions League on November 25, RB Salzburg is the next group attack for defending champion Bayern Munich.
