Four new cases of Covid-19 in Charleroi, postponement of the match against Beerschot requested
Tests had been carried out this Wednesday morning for the weekend meeting, as required by the protocol of the Pro League. Guillaume Gillet, Gjoko Zajkov, Marco Ilaimaharitra and Joachim Imbrechts have joined an already long list of thirteen Zebras tested positive.
Tuesday during the day, the club explained that six players (Lukasz Teodorczyk, Amine Benchaib, Saido Berahino, Joris Kayembe, Kaveh Rezaei and Ognjen Vranjes), six members of the staff (Karim Belhocine, Cédric Berthelin, Frank Defays, Samba Diaw etara, David Dalmut Damien Januel) and a member of the management (Pierre-Yves Hendrickx) had been affected by the virus.
In total, therefore, 17 Zebras including 10 players are currently placed in quarantine. Direct consequence of this wave of contamination: Sporting has submitted a request to postpone the meeting scheduled for this Saturday evening against Beerschot, as it is entitled to since more than seven players in its core are currently positive. If the request is accepted, the match will be rescheduled at a later date.
In the meantime, this Thursday’s training has been canceled. The next meeting in Charleroi should therefore be the trip to Mouscron scheduled for Sunday April 4.
