Russian Club "Fc Orenburg" become fourth Russian football club with positive covid-19 case

Fc Orenburg has became the fourth team hit by coronavirus cases since the resumption of Russian league last weekend.
Fc Orenburg, who are scheduled to play league rival Fc Krasnodar on Saturday, said six players and two backroom staff returned positive tests.
Coach Konstantin Paramonov said Thursday's training had been cancelled and raised the possibility that the first team would be put in isolation and completely replaced for the league game on the weekend.
Orenburg said its players had all tested negative before last weekend's game against Lokomotiv Moscow.
According to Paramonov, the team was again tested at the airport, after the match against Lokomotiv, with six players producing tests that came back positive.
Russian league president Sergei Pryadkin said the players who had tested positive were isolated and an official health enquiry is been investigated.
The club said in a statement that until further notice, the entire professional staff will reside at Bakovka, the club's training centre south-west of the Russian capital.
The Russian league resumed on 19 June but was immediately disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.
