A corona outbreak to the inert: two days before the start of the new Bundesliga season, ELF professionals are in quarantine at FSV Mainz 05.
The whole league is in the starting blocks, the fans will return to thousands in the stadiums – but immediately before the prelude, the pandemic returns to the memory of German football again: at FSV Mainz 05 it has a serious corona two days before the start of the season. Outbreak given, the club reported on Wednesday from a “acute illness”.
A total of eleven professionals of the Rheinhessen were sent by the responsible health department in front of the home game on Sunday (15.30 clock live on Dazn) against Vice-Champion RB Leipzig in domestic isolation. The training on Wednesday was canceled immediately.
“The statutes are clear,” said FSV Chief Board Stefan Hofmann the picture: “At the moment, we assume that the game will take place. The health department has recommended us to cancel today’s workout. As it continues, we have to see “

Mainz 05: Member of the trainer team also tested positively

Onisiwo was first tested positively on the coronavirus, the Rheinhessen had publicly made the case on Sunday immediately before the fins in the DFB Cup at SV Elversberg (8: 7 I.e.).
