Jacob Rasmussen is also infected with the corona virus at Vitesse. On Thursday it turned out that eight staff members of the Arnhem club had been found positive.

Also positive case with Sparta

“The test results just received show that, apart from the already known staff members, only Jacob Rasmussen has tested positive”, Vitesse reported on Friday. “As a precaution, Rasmussen has not had contact with fellow players and club officials since Wednesday and has skipped training on Thursday and Friday.”

Last weekend, the Danish defender still had a basic place in the first competition match of Vitesse, which won 0-1 against RKC Waalwijk. He will have to miss the home game against Sparta Rotterdam on Saturday due to the mandatory quarantine.

On Thursday, head coach Thomas Letsch and his assistants Jospeh Oosting, Jan Fiesser, Rein Baart, Jan van Norel, Tim Arends, Dennis van der Meulen and Jos Kortekaas tested positive. Against Sparta, technical director Johannes Spors will form the technical staff together with Edward Sturing and Nicky Hofs.

Opponent Sparta reported on Friday morning that midfielder Deroy Duarte was infected with the virus. He will also have to miss the match in the GelreDome stadium.

According to the corona rules of the KNVB, a match will only be postponed if a club has less than thirteen players (including at least one goalkeeper) at its disposal.
