German striker Klose quarantined over swine flu
MUNICH — Bayern Munich says striker Miroslav Klose and his family have been quarantined after his twin sons came down with swine flu.
Klose and his wife, Sylwia, are under observation and it is unclear whether he will be able to play in Germany’s international exhibition against Ivory Coast next Wednesday.
Bayern Munich media director Markus Hoerwick said Thursday that “we have to wait and see how the situation develops.”
Klose did not join the German national team ahead of the scheduled match against Chile on Saturday. That exhibition was canceled following the suicide death of goalkeeper Robert Enke.
