VfB Stuttgart: three professionals in quarantine

Three professionals from Bundesliga promoted VfB Stuttgart have gone into isolation due to corona cases in their area. “Marcin Kaminski is in quarantine due to a positive corona case in his child’s daycare center,” said coach Pellegrino Matarazzo on Tuesday. In the rehabilitation environment of the Argentine national player Nicolas Gonzalez and Lilian Egloff there was also a positive case, all three players had “tested negative”.

Therefore, there is “no impact on the rest of the team,” said Matarazzo before the game against VfL Wolfsburg on Wednesday. “As a precautionary measure, you have quarantined yourself as possible contact person,” said the coach.

As in the 1: 2 at Union Berlin on Saturday, the Swabians will miss the Croatian left-back Borna Sosa (capsule injury). “With him it can still take a week or two,” said Matarazzo. With Gonzalez (hamstring torn thigh) he expects a return this season.

The attacker could possibly be back in three weeks, said Matarazzo: “If everything goes well, he can intervene in the last games before the end of the season. We want to build Nico slowly and not take any risks.”

Attacker Hamadi Al Ghaddioui, however, returned to full team training after a bit more than a month after the syndesmosis had cracked.
