China players to join clubs after finishing quarantine

China’s men’s national team members have completed their quarantine after returning from Dubai last month and will go back to their respective clubs, the team said yesterday.

The team ended the two-week medical quarantine after all players tested negative for COVID-19, Xinhua news agency reported. The 25-man squad has been in self-isolation in a hotel in Sanya since their March 23 return from their training camp in Dubai. “Our team had COVID-19 tests right upon arrival in Sanya, and the results were all negative,” Team China said in a social media post. “We had coronavirus tests again on Sunday before the end of the 14-day quarantine, which showed the same results. All the players will return back to their clubs.” China postponed all domestic games in January and banned the entry of foreigners last month in a blow to hopes that a start to the new Chinese Super League season was on the horizon. Several CSL teams have begun preseason training behind closed doors. The CSL season was scheduled to start on February 22.
