Meanwhile, football club Ajax’s assistant coach, Cristian Poulsen has been asked to stay home along with two other Ajax staff members until next Firday due to a suspected coronavirus infection, RTL Nieuws reports.

As of now, these are precautionary measures, as Poulsen celebrated his 40th birthday party where a guest had tested positive for COVID-19. Alongside Poulsen, the team’s physiologist, Alessandro Schoenmaker as well as one of the physiotherapists are also under home isolation, according to De Telegraaf.

Naturally, the team does not want to take any risks in the case that the virus breaks out further.
