Ten corona cases and six injuries: even assistant Verhaegh as a substitute on the bench at FC Den Bosch | Dutch football

Just before the end of the season, FC Den Bosch was hit by a heavy corona outbreak in the selection. Ten players were tested positive prior to tonight’s away game against MVV. With another six injured and the suspension of Paco van Moorsel (fifth yellow card), FC Den Bosch misses seventeen players in Maastricht.




The club therefore starts in a fantasy setup. On the reserve bench is a mixture of slightly injured players (Rik Mulders and Teun van Grunsven), youth players (Sven Roos, Ryan Leijten, Max van Hees and the 16-year-old Sol van de Ven) and even goalkeeper coach John Vos and assistant coach Paul Verhaegh.

“We have been spared by corona for most of the season, but now we are still hit hard”, said technical manager Jan Gösgens tonight in Maastricht. “They are all players from the same dressing room.”

Although FC Den Bosch does not disclose the names of the positively tested players, it is clear that it is Ringo Meerveld, Konrad Sikking, Steven van der Heijden, Sebastiaan van Bakel, Jorn van Hedel, Ryan Trotman, Declan Lambert, Robin Voets, Roy Kuijpers and third goalkeeper Gijs Schalks goes. The players who cannot play due to injuries are Soufyan Ahannach, Kevin Felida, Jordy van der Winden, Najim Haidary, Christophe van Zutphen and Adrien Bongiovanni.
