13 people out of around 90 tested were found to have antibodies to COVID-19 following blood tests performed in June, according to the newspaper.
Miel Brinkhuis, head of communications at Ajax, told De Telegraaf that the news was true,
“It is true that a number of players and staff members have had the coronavirus,” he said, while declining to confirm the identity or number of cases for legal reasons.
However, he also clarified that these regulations mean that there are no existing COVID-19 cases within Erik ten Hag’s squad:
“I want to emphasise that there is currently no one with corona and – except Andre Onana, who has mild ankle complaints – everyone was present on the training on Tuesday.”
