Ajax announced on Monday that 11 players had tested positive before it’s tie against Danish side FC Midtjylland on Tuesday.
As a result, the Dutch club will travel to Denmark with just 17 players for their third Group D game.
“They have no symptoms or complaints. If they might still be able to play rests in the hands of the medical personnel and the authorities. I have strong hope that they can play but I am not sure.”
Ajax lost its opening game in the Champions League to reigning Premier League champions Liverpool while it earned an 2-2 draw to last season’s quarterfinalists Atalanta last time out.
Elsewhere, six Dynamo Kyiv players and five members of staff have tested positive for Covid-19 ahead of its Champions League Group G match against Spanish giants Barcelona on Wednesday.
“In addition, the tests of assistant head coach Emil Karas and four representatives of the team’s staff gave a positive result.”
It also added that those who had tested positive were in self-isolation and doing well.
Dynamo are third in Group G with one point, five behind leaders Barcelona.
