Gonzalez, 60, is said to have been in quarantine with his wife, who also had the disease.
Reacting to the development, Stade de Reims’ President, Jean-Pierre Caillot, in a statement, described Gonzalez as a great professional of the sport.
Caillot said: “Words fail me. I am stunned by this news.
“This pandemic affects the Stade de Reims in its heart. He was a personality of Reims and a great professional in the sport.
“He was with the club for more than 20 years and carried out his job with the utmost professionalism, in a passionate and even selfless manner.
“Doctor Gonzalez, in the harshest periods of the club, worked on a voluntary basis. He is a precise doctor in his missions and an artist by his passions.
“Today all my thoughts, those of the club, of which he will remain a strong figure, go to his wife and parents.
“Today, it’s a drama that strikes us.”
