Seefeld: Germany are still waiting for Toni Kroos to test negative for the coronavirus and join up with the team ahead of the European Championship, nearly two weeks after the Real Madrid midfielder first contracted the virus, coach Joachim Loew said on Saturday.

Real Madrid said on 17 May that Kroos tested positive while already in isolation after contact with another person who recorded a positive test. That is delaying his arrival at Germany’s pre-tournament training camp in Austria.

“Yesterday he was still positive and for as long he remains positive, he has to stay in quarantine,” Loew said. “As soon as he gets a negative test result on one day, he’ll set off on the journey to us. He’s already had light symptoms, though they were last week.”

Kroos said last week on a podcast he hosts with his brother that he had a fever.

Germany have a warm-up friendly against Denmark on Wednesday and another against Latvia on 7 June before starting their Euro 2020 campaign against France in Munich on 15 June.

The German players involved in Saturday’s Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea will join the team later. Loew said he hadn’t received any information about the condition of midfielder Ilkay Gundogan after he left City’s training session Friday early following a collision with teammate Fernandinho.

There are also fitness concerns over another midfielder, Leon Goretzka, who is scheduled to join the Germany team Tuesday. The Bayern Munich player tore a muscle in a game for the club on 8 May.
