Four positive COVID-19 tests at Brugge ahead of Champions League tie
Published in Ahram Online on 19 - 10 - 2020

Belgium's Club Brugge arrived in Russia for Tuesday's Champions League group stage tie at Zenit St Petersburg without three players and their CEO who have all tested positive for the novel coronavirus including their first choice goalkeeper.
Simon Mignolet, who kept goal for Belgium in last week's internationals, plus team mates Odilon Kossounou and Michael Krmencik as well as CEO Vincent Mannaert were left behind when the squad travelled on Monday, the club said in a statement here.
Brugge have also been hit by injury to Ivorian defender Simon Deli in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Standard Liege and the international also misses their opening Group F match.
“The infected players were immediately quarantined. None of them are displaying any symptoms,” said Monday's club statement.
“We are still going with a good feeling to Zenit, even if there are a few of our important team mates who had to stay at home,” captain Ruud Vormer said on Twitter.
