If André Onana and Ryan Gravenberch have actually tested positive for the corona virus on Monday, it will be the third time this year for the goalkeeper and midfielder of Ajax, Mike Verweij reports. The Telegraph. The journalist calls it “almost unthinkable” that Onana and Gravenberch have corona again and thus questions the results of the tests by UEFA.

Ajax has to deal with eleven corona infections, including Onana, Gravenberch, Davy Klaassen, Dusan Tadic and Zakaria Labyad. “A very big loss”, Verweij calls the situation of Ajax in a video item for his newspaper. “I think the medical staff of Ajax was shocked on Monday morning. Ajax has its own PCR tests, they test the players with it two, three times a week. UEFA thinks it is necessary for another test, another laboratory. , which conducts tests. That’s where these results came out, then there was panic. ” Ajax had its selection tested again on Monday afternoon; the results are known 24 hours later.

Verweij insinuates that the test results could be unreliable. “Gravenberch would have had corona for the third time, which is almost unthinkable. The same applies to Onana, who was tested positive at the training camp in Cameroon. A day later negative again. They still have hope that one, two or maybe three players have been tested false positive and can still go to Denmark on Tuesday. ” Ajax coach Erik ten Hag indicated at the press conference that it is indeed being investigated whether the team from Amsterdam can allow extra players to fly in.

Kjell Scherpen will probably be Ajax’s goalkeeper, because Maarten Stekelenburg is also not in the match selection. “Normally yes, unless Onana is allowed to travel anyway. The annoying thing for Ajax is that these are the most important matches of the Champions League. If you ‘just’ win twice against Midtjylland, you will play Europa League after the winter break, and you have a good chance to continue in the Champions League. But if you lose to Midtjylland, the European adventure can end very quickly. “

The enormous corona outbreak hit Ajax like a bomb, Verweij knows. “It is very striking: at Ajax they were convinced that they had already had thirteen infections in the first wave. Apparently that immunity is very disappointing. Ajax was fairly proud that they had the situation under control. But I think that after the outbreaks at NAC Breda, AZ and PSV it has been proven that the virus can sneak into your selection. It is very difficult to stop that. “
