According to the club on Sunday, the young Belgian is in quarantine at home. Onana had been given an extended summer vacation because of assignments for the U21s in his home country – and should now actually start training on the Elbe. But nothing will come of it for the time being. “The most important thing is of course the health of our boys and employees. We wish Amadou a mild course and, like Robert, will support him as best as possible,” said sporting director Michael Mutzel.
“I’m not going to hang my head. Now is the time to be patient.”
The 19-year-old explained: “The test result surprised and disappointed me, because I wanted to get back into the training camp. Nevertheless, I will not hang my head. It is now important to be patient and to follow the guidelines carefully. I am happy looking forward to being with the boys again. “
Test game canceled – at least Vagnoman in Grassau there
The three corona cases apparently have nothing to do with each other. The players should not have had any contact with each other beforehand. Nevertheless, they of course make the work of new trainer Tim Walter more difficult. Due to a lack of staff, the test match against the Berlin regional league team VSG Altglienicke, which was actually scheduled for Friday, had already been canceled.
While Leistner is already back in training, Glatzel and Onana miss the training camp in Grassau (June 29th to July 7th). Josha Vagnoman can be there. The 20-year-old, who also got an extended vacation after triumphing with the German national team at the U21 European Championship, tested negative.
