Mönchengladbach (dpa) – Max Eberl is excited that professional football will be spared the expected hard lockdown against the uncontrolled spread of corona. “We didn’t get a signal about football,” said Borussia Mönchengladbach’s sports director.
The 47-year-old referred to the manageable corona cases in the top leagues so far: “I believe we have done very well with our concepts that we developed in March, April, May. That we have shown that Game Control is possible with a truly minimal, virtually zero infection. “
According to Eberl, the chance of infection in football will decrease in the coming weeks: “Most of the infections came when the boys were traveling the world. That would now be eliminated for the first time because Europe is over and the international matches are over. We got no signal. about football that we had to fear in some way. But that is decided in politics. “
Nevertheless, Eberl expressed sympathy for any stricter national Corona measures: “The virus will not stop. Health is paramount. And we want to celebrate Christmas 2021 and 2022 again with everyone who is important to us.”
