Comeback for Timo Kastening, who is suffering from Corona, not certain


Share post:

Timo Kastening, who tested positive for Corona, is currently leaving a return to the national handball team at the European Championship open. At the moment he has slight symptoms, “my throat is quite tight and closed,” reported the 26-year-old on the TV station “Bild”.

Kastening is one of nine corona cases in the German team at the tournament in Slovakia and Hungary. Like all those who tested positive, he was isolated from the rest of the team and is alone in his hotel room in Bratislava.

Kastening could play again for the DHB selection after five days and two negative PCR tests. At the earliest, he would be available again for the team of national coach Alfred Gislason on Sunday in the third main round game against Sweden. “That’s why we’re here, too, because hope is the only thing that makes it still seem pleasant. Somehow, of course, you have the hope of getting back into the tournament,” he said.

Comeback without training and playing time for Kastening unlikely

“On the other hand, the players who are here now are also top players and are doing a great job. And why should a player who hasn’t trained or played for five, six, seven days be put back in the squad You have to be honest with yourself,” added Kastening. National coach Gislason has already reacted to the Corona outbreak within his team with a number of subsequent nominations.

Nevertheless, he could perhaps rely on backcourt player Julius Kühn again on Thursday (6:00 p.m. / ARD) for the start of the main round against Spain. The 28-year-old was the first German player to test positive in Bratislava last Saturday. On Wednesday morning he completed a PCR test. If this and another PCR test are negative on Thursday morning, Kühn should leave the quarantine and run up against the Spaniards again.
