Bundesliga is returning this month and Marco Reus, the captain of Borussia Dortmund has said in a statement that he is excited for the resumption of the league but it is also important to not forget about the responsibility.
Reus said the official website of the club, “All of us players have missed being able to do our job. So, of course, I’m delighted about the decision to allow the Bundesliga to restart. We’re seeing the same thing across various sectors of the economy: ideas are being developed to allow public life to resume, step by step, and as sensibly as possible.”
He also reminded about the responsibility which they need to follow, “We’ve been given a chance, and it’s essential that we all act with full responsibility. Professional footballers are normal people; we have our flaws like everyone else. But we should all know that people are now scrutinising us more intensely than ever before. That’s entirely reasonable.”
All the sporting events have come to halt due to the coronavirus outbreak. German Football Association announced about the resumption of Bundesliga which will start from 16th May.
The captain also said that this is very important for everyone to be healthy and fit. There are an extensive testing regimes and hygiene measures in place.
He further said about the medical plan that, “With regards to the medical plan developed for professional football: there are never any guarantees when it comes to health, and we are obviously no exception. Nonetheless, in light of the extensive testing regime and the hygiene measures in place, there is a very high probability that everyone involved will remain healthy.”
