Wellington Phoenix Goalie Grounded In Adelaide
Wellington Phoenix goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic, one of the team’s top performers of last season, has been left grounded for fourteen more days in Adelaide, South Australia, by a new outbreak of infections at Peppers Waymouth Hotel. Marinovic was spending time in isolation at the facility at the time of the outbreak.
Marinovic was already halfway through a 14-day managed isolation stay at the Adelaide facility when guests in residency were informed of a cluster-outbreak at the hotel. The latest outbreak means the New Zealand international will now have to spend an additional fourteen days isolated in Adelaide, and that subsequently, Wellington Phoenix will have to other option but to continue preparing for the new A-League season without their champion goalkeeper. The new upcoming new season gets underway on December 27.
Wellington Phoenix General Manager David Dome has in the meantime expressed his disappointment over Marinovic having to now spend a total of 21 days in Adelaide, instead of only the original 14. He however added that the decision to have the goalkeeper return home to his team at their current base in Wollongong via Adelaide was at the time of the booking of the flight the best option available. At the time of the booking of the flight Adelaide had zero cases of infection on record, said Dome.
Marinovic is in the process of returning to Australia following his participation in Germany’s A-League offseason. His absence leaves the club with only a single reserve-goalkeeper to fall back on.
