Dortmund cancel training session after Meunier and Brandt test COVID positive 

Borussia Dortmund canceled their open training session scheduled on Tuesday. The Bundesliga team had to call off the game due to positive coronavirus tests for Thomas Meunier and Julian Brandt.

Borussia Dortmund suffered a preseason setback after both Thomas Meunier and Julian Brandt tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday. Dortmund had planned to hold a public training session to showcase their squad, which had been bolstered by the signings of Donyell Malen and Gregor Kobel, but they had to cancel due to positive tests among the first-team group.

Before releasing information about Brandt’s test on Twitter the club issued a statement announcing Meunier’s COVID-19 results as they announced the cancellation of the open training session.

The statement concerning Meunier on the official website said: “Borussia Dortmund defender Thomas Meunier has tested positive for coronavirus. The Belgium international took two tests prior to the training camp in Switzerland and an additional test before departing from Bad Ragaz. All of those tests came back negative.”

“Having had several days off, the player has now tested positive before commencing training this week. Thomas Meunier has since been in isolation. We hope that Thomas’ symptoms are as mild as possible and that he gets well soon.”

Dortmund’s official Twitter account posted the news later on Tuesday that Brandt, too, had tested positive. The Yellow Black Bundesliga club took over micro-blogging website Twitter to write: “Following the positive COVID-19 test of Thomas Meunier, there has unfortunately been another positive case from testing following the player’s day off. Julian Brandt has tested positive for COVID-19 and we wish him a symptom-free and speedy recovery.”
