In June, Ajax’s staff and first and second teams underwent a blood test in preparation for the new Dutch football season.
“13 staff members and players of the approximately 90 people tested appear to have antibodies against Covid-19 in their blood,” writes the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.
“It is true that a number of players and staff have had the coronavirus,” confirms head of communication Miel Brinkhuis, who does not enter names and numbers due to privacy legislation.
“I want to emphasize that at the moment no one has corona and – except André Onana, who has mild ankle complaints – everyone was present on Tuesday on training.”
Nothing is known about when the persons involved contracted the virus. No positive case would have had complaints either.
In the Netherlands, the competition was not resumed after the lockdown and the Ajax training center also remained closed for weeks.
