Coaches and managers refer to the population groups that should all be professional footballers against the Coronavirus vaccination. “We will do like in the back,” said Manager Horst Heldt from 1.

Objective: to conditions, The speedy return to a Non-Corona-times.

So it’s not just the question of when professionals, trainers, and staff vaccinated could or should, depending on whether the Clubs arrange it or not. It is also a question as to when viewers are again conceivable. Hard to say, it was Borussia Dortmund’s Manager Michael Zorc said recently the Sky to the question of when vaccinations spectators in the stadiums back could possible make. “We secretly hope that it is after Easter, it is again possible. But this is a pure speculation that is not well-founded,” said Zorc.

An emotional topic

A discussion of vaccinated and possibly have approved viewers, and not vaccinated and not to the stadium visit, the authorised Fans seems to want to be in Germany is not involved. How delicate that can be, should all be aware of. Just as the entire issue to Corona and the professional sports, and especially professional football is not free of emotions.

The health of the society is, of course, about the Sport, it’s about the cohesion of all people, to get us through this pandemic,” said monk Gladbach Manager Max Eberl of the “sports show”.

Just 19 percent of respondents were in favour of vaccination top athletes, you can participate in the coming year to major events such as the Olympic Games in Tokyo, or the European football championship.

Sebastian Hoeness: I don’t want any special treatment

Hoffenheim Coach Sebastian Hoeness has expressed the hope that “sometime” in professional football vaccinated can be. “But not before the people that it is urgently necessary to it. I don’t want any special treatment”. In the case of other trainers, the Tenor is the same. Only the elderly and people in nursing homes and hospitals,” said Marco Rose from Borussia Mönchengladbach: “We are footballers come sometime in June or July. At the point we should not jump the queue.” Heiko Herrlich looks no different. We are back, and that is absolutely correct. If it is, we are informed,” said the coach of FC Augsburg.

And what if it is, then where? Cologne Heldt stressed that they will coordinate with your doctor. He even wants to be vaccinated as soon as possible. “Everyone has to make in this country, but the law as he sees fit. I won’t force anyone,” he said. “I would exclude, I think, that there is a mandatory vaccination for all League players, but we haven’t talked about in the League yet,” said Werder Bremen’s Director Frank Baumann. It was now far too early.
