Collins' club, Paderborn said in a statement on its website “Paderborn players and the supervisory staff have been tested twice for the coronavirus in the past few days and twice there have been consistently negative test results,”

“That is why head coach Steffen Baumgart is back in team training with his team this afternoon (Tuesday), taking into account the requirements of the authorities and taking into account the recommendations of the German Football League.”
