Berlin (dpa) – RB Leipzig’s manager Markus Krösche would like a “clear regulation” by the world football association for the deposition of national players when traveling to corona risk areas.
Before the Bundesliga match against SC Freiburg in Leipzig, Krösche emphasized that there are risk areas across Europe, but that the world association FIFA is maintaining the obligation to retire. It should not be compulsory for international trips to these areas, said Krösche. However, he does not believe that “that will change greatly,” emphasized the 40-year-old on Sky TV.
The Leipziger want to comply with the obligation to leave the international break. In their case, if the players did not test positive, they would not have to be quarantined according to the requirements of the responsible health department in Leipzig. Krösche said it was currently being passed “a little to the respective” local authorities. As a club, it is always a risk when players are currently traveling.
