The corona virus continues to mess up the VfB Stuttgart squad. After Waldemar Anton and Erik Thommy, Fabian Bredlow and Roberto Massimo, Florian Müller has now – after a free weekend – caught.

According to the club, the goalkeeper is in domestic isolation. The Stuttgart did not provide any information about his health. The Olympic rider, however, is vaccinated as well as Bredlow and Massimo.

“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,” says sports director Sven Mislintat. “We hope that these measures mean that there will be no further positive cases in the coming days.”

Müller, who signed for five million euros from 1. FSV Mainz 05 in the summer, has so far played all seven Bundesliga games for VfB (average kicker score of 3.36). It is still unclear who will replace the 23-year-old on the weekend – if he has to be replaced. The third goalkeeper is the 20-year-old Florian Schock.
