Speaking of the rise in cases at the club, Alexander Rosen – Hoffenheim’s head of pro football – said in a statement: ‘We cannot explain this frequency.
‘We have been sticking for months with great detail to all the health guidelines. That is how we came through months without a positive test during the pandemic that is now hitting us hard.’
The Bundesliga takes a break at the weekend for international matches and resumes again in 10 days.
However, the last International break in October saw Hoffenheim’s Andrej Kramaric and Kasim Adams return and test positive for the virus.
