Players Odilon Kossounou, Michael Krmencik, and CEO Vincent Mannaert are the other three people to test positive.

A club statement read: “On Saturday morning, the entire Bruges delegation was tested for Covid-19 in anticipation of the European match in and against Saint Petersburg.

“Internationals Simon Mignolet and Odilon Kossounou and attacker Michael Krmencik tested positive.

“CEO Vincent Mannaert also passed a positive corona test.

“Last Thursday, the entire squad was tested via the Jupiler Pro League protocol, when everyone else tested negative.
