In addition, the tests detected the coronavirus in the assistant coach, Emil karas, and four other members of Dinamo’s technical team.
All the patients are in perfect condition and have been confined, says the club.
Dinamo, which has a point in two Champions League games, played a league game against Dnipró-1 (1-2) on Saturday, a result that allows them to remain at the top of the table.
In early October another Ukrainian team, the Shakhtar Donetsk, also detected positives in a dozen of their players before traveling to Spain to face Real Madrid in the Champions League, which they defeated (2-3) after a great first half.
