The effects of the spread of the coronavirus have reached the main football clubs in Europe. As reported by the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, there are three members of the technical staff of the Dutch Ajax team, forced to remain in quarantine for being suspected of being infected by the COVID-19 virus. Those affected are the assistant coach of the coach Erik ten Hag, Christian Poulsen, the team doctor Alessandro Schoenmaker and one of the first team physiotherapists.
Ajax has decided that the three people stay away from the first team of the Amsterdam club until March 13 as prevention. The three members of the coaching staff are awaiting evolution and if they do not show symptoms they will return to their normal routine. The three gathered at a birthday party where there was a contagion.
Thirteen Brondby members also suspect
The coronavirus also rages in Danish football. Up to thirteen Brondby members have been sent in quarantine for 14 days, including Danish club CEO Ole Palma; the central defender Joel Kabongo and the second coach, Martin Retov. Everyone had contact with the club's former soccer player, Thomas Kahlenberg, who has tested positive for coronavirus.
