Thomas Meunier's positive coronavirus test in the latest round of testing, conducted after the players had been given several days off, has unfortunately been followed by another positive test: midfielder Julian Brandt has immediately self-isolated.

We hope Julian experiences as few symptoms as possible and makes a quick recovery.

We're deeply disappointed to have to cancel today's public session at short notice because of the test results that we have just received.

We remain in close contact with the health authorities. Unfortunately, a training session cannot take place in the form we had planned in light of these latest events. We have intensified our own precautionary measures once more.

We apologise from the bottom of our hearts and promise that we will soon make up for this session, which everyone including ourselves had been looking forward to.
