Slavia prematurely ended her training camp in Austria and is returning to the Czech Republic. One of the players of the championship team became infected with coronavirus. The head of the club, Jaroslav Tvrdík, informed about it on the social network twitter and this was also confirmed by the red and white websites.
The positive findings were revealed by tests that the Slavia team underwent on Monday. “We consulted the subsequent procedure with the Hygiene Station of the Capital City of Prague, which ordered domestic quarantine for players with a positive finding and recommended the rest of the team to return to the Czech Republic.” said the club’s spokesman Michal Býček.
Slavia therefore terminated her training camp in Laa an der Thaya prematurely, which means a complication for her before the approaching start of the new season of the first league. It will start for the defending champion next week on Sunday, August 23, at the České Budějovice field. Slavia is not scheduled to appear in the preliminary round of the Champions League until mid-September.
The people of Prague managed to play two preparatory matches in Austria, first they managed 5: 0 with St. Pölten and then defeated Fehérvár 3: 1. Slavia lost both remaining duels due to the infection. Today she was to play against Graz and on Friday in the general in the league against Austria Vienna.
For Slavia, this is the second case of infection in the club. In May, before the resumption of the first league after a break caused by a pandemic, a coronavirus was discovered in one of the footballers of the wider cadre. Due to this, the team from Eden canceled the preparatory duel with Jihlava and the team spent two days in quarantine.
