“The rest of our squad have begun a team quarantine according to the prevention concept.”
“This means that they can only travel between their houses, the training ground and match locations. No other contacts should be needed.”
“In addition, all international call-ups for FC Red Bull Salzburg players in the next two weeks have been rejected.”
“This is a standard procedure that is required as part of the Covid-19 prevention concept agreed between the Austrian Bundesliga, Austrian Football Association and Austrian authorities.”
