Wolfsburg defender Marin Pongračić is still dealing with the effects of COVID-19 weeks after his infection and had to be taken off during the weekend's Bundesliga game. Pongračić, who was infected with the coronavirus while on international duty with Croatia in November, was substituted at half time in Wolfsburg’s 2-2 draw at Union Berlin on Saturday. Wolfsburg coach Oliver Glasner said he took the 23-year-old defender off because he had breathing problems from early on in Union’s Stadion an der Alten Försterei.
