Unsure of whether U.S. Men’s National Team defender Steve Cherundolo is infected, Hannover have decided to quarantine the 30-year-old until it has become medically clear he doesn’t have the virus.
"Until we have clarity, it would be irresponsible not to isolate Stevie from the team," Hannover director of sport Joerg Schmadtke said of the preventive measure to the club’s website.
Cherundolo’s U.S. teammate, Landon Donovan was infected with the virus and it is not yet certain when he contracted it, so in order to protect the rest of the team, Hannover have decided this to be the best path for the American.
Having spent the last 10 seasons with Hannover, Cherundolo has made 267 appearances for the German club, scoring 6 goals in the process.
