Cologne players will not be quarantined after three players tested positive for coronavirus in the squad.
“They are fine, none of the three have symptoms. We take care of them and advise them,” Paul Klein, the head of medical services at the Bundesliga club, said.
“I would never put the players at risk, but the question of whether we can train and how I do not evaluate it as a club doctor, but the health authorities.”
Meanwhile, “we have reason to be very optimistic," the club's managing director, Alexander Wehrle, told German broadcaster Sky Sports News.
"We can continue training as we have been. The plan has been approved by the authorities and it is sustainable."
