Warder Bremen have confirmed that one of their players has been placed on a two-week quarantine a day before the Bundesliga resumes.

Germany’s top flight will return on Saturday after being temporarily suspended from March due to the coronavirus epidemic.

Warder explained that the unnamed player did not test positive but that a member of his “personal circle” had been contracted to COVID-19.

A statement read: “After a positive test for COVID-19 earlier this week for a member of the SV Warder Bremen First Group, members of his personal cycle have been placed under two weeks of separation.

“Although the player himself tested negative in all previous rounds, it was decided to keep him separate from the Brent health authorities.

“The player has tested negative on two occasions since.”

Sports Director Frank Baumann added: “As a result, our team and our staff are not at risk. This shows that the treatment protocol is working and affected people can be identified to take the necessary action.”

The first European leagues are set to resume after the Bundesliga was shut down due to the coronavirus crisis.

Bremen, ranked 17th in the table, are set to face Bayer Leverkusen on Monday.
