The corona virus continues to spread at Bundesliga soccer club VfB Stuttgart.
Within a few days, goalkeeper Florian Müller was the fifth player to test positive, as the club announced.
This means that the Olympic participant is expected to be unable to play the away game on Saturday at Borussia Mönchengladbach (6.30 p.m., live ticker SPIEGEL.de; TV: Sky).
In addition to Müller, Waldemar Anton, Erik Thommy, U21 national player Roberto Massimo and substitute goalkeeper Fabian Bredlow are also in domestic isolation, who had previously tested positive.
All other tests were negative, said the club.
As of now, the 20-year-old Florian Schock is the only capable goalkeeper from the Stuttgart professional squad.
"After the first positive cases last week, we significantly increased the number of tests and intensified the hygiene regulations relating to training operations beyond the prescribed level," said VfB Sports Director Sven Mislintat.
"We hope that these measures mean that there will be no further positive cases in the coming days."
