German soccer club Cologne

Three people at German soccer club Cologne have tested positive for the coronavirus in the latest blow to the Bundesliga’s hopes of resuming this month.

In a statement on Friday, Cologne didn’t name the people who tested positive, and didn’t say whether they were players.

None of the three displayed symptoms and they will all spend 14 days in isolation at home, the club said.

Tests have been carried out this week on players, coaches and other staff at Bundesliga clubs ahead of a planned return firstly to full team training, then to competition. Cologne said its players and staff were tested on Thursday.
