Brondby have quarantined 13 people-a player and their assistant coach included-after former Denmark international, Thomas Kahlenberg was diagnosed with Coronavirus.

Christian Schultz says Kahlenberg contracted the virus in Amsterdam last weekend and was at Brondby’s game against Lyngby on Sunday.

Defender Joel Kabongo is in quarantine alongside assistant coach Martin Retov while Lyngby also has three players in isolation.

Shultz reported to BBC that Kabongo met Kahlenberg after the game because they were former team-mates and they “shook hands”.

Schultz also confirmed that their data analyst, psychologist and nine members of staff, including their Chief executive Ole Palma was in isolation.

Lyngby midfielder, Martin Ornskov, right back Kasper Jorgensen and left-back Patrick da Silva are also in 14-day quarantine after meeting Kahlenberg after the game.

Schultz said Kahlenberg was “very, very sorry for the commotion he’s caused” but he was in “good spirits.”

He also revealed former Liverpool midfielder, now in Ajax as an assistant coach, Christian Poulsen is in quarantine. This after being with Kahlenberg in Amsterdam.
