Klose quarantined after sons contract swine flu

BERLIN - Germany and Bayern Munich striker Miroslav Klose has been quarantined after his twin sons contracted the H1N1 influenza virus (swine flu).

"This is why Klose did not join the national squad in Bonn ... and he did not train on Thursday for Bayern," the club said on their website.

It was unclear whether the 31-year-old would attend a memorial on Sunday for Germany keeper Robert Enke, who committed suicide on Tuesday, or if he would play for the national team in Wednesday's friendly against Ivory Coast.

"He and his wife Sylwia are currently being monitored," said Bayern before adding the striker would stay at home for the time being.
