Neuer, Goretzka Leave Germany Camp Hotel After Testing Positive For COVID-19


September 21, (THEWILL) – The German football federation has confirmed that Manuel Neuer and Leon Goretzka have tested positive for COVID-19.

In order to distance themselves from the rest of the German national team, the 36-year-old Neuer and 27-year-old Goretzka, will check out of the team hotel. Already, Oliver Baumann of Hoffenheim has been called up as a replacement goalkeeper, according to the German FA, with “any further squad additions being announced later in the day.”

On Wednesday, a statement said: “Leon Goretzka (27) and Manuel Neuer (36) tested positive for the Coronavirus on Wednesday morning. Both national players from FC Bayern Munchen were isolated, and will leave the team hotel.

“Due to a positive Coronavirus test within one of the players’ private circles, the medical team conducted a rapid antigen test on the whole national team. All members of the coaching staff and the team are required to test negative before travelling. Confirmed contacts of both players will be tested daily.”

Germany, which is in second place in its Nations League group, plays Hungary on Friday, before going to Wembley Stadium to play England the following Monday.
