Christian Seifert, Managing Director of the DFL, spoke to the professionals and the clubs once again before the start of the new Bundesliga season. With a view to the corona pandemic, Seifert appealed in a circular from which the kicker quoted on Monday, again to the personal responsibility of all those responsible so as not to endanger the league operation.
“Everyone is free not to be vaccinated – but then this must also be accompanied by the obligation to ensure that one does not get infected with the corona virus as far as possible,” it says loudly kicker in the letter.
According to Seifert, “it should be in the common interest not to endanger the performance of the clubs as employers and (…) to prevent negative influences on sporting competition in the interests of solidarity.”
In this regard, the DFL boss asks “especially within your club to continue to seek intensive dialogue, especially with your players, as to whether and how to deal with the pandemic-related challenges”.
