He sees vaccination as a “solidary measure”, he continued: “Unfortunately, it has not yet penetrated many people what kind of achievement it is. With clear common sense and the responsibility that one has, there can only be one decision. “
The Bundesliga clubs themselves do not communicate any figures on how many of their players have been vaccinated. In terms of sport, Streich only has to do without Nils Petersen (training after meniscus surgery) at the Bundesliga opener on Saturday at Arminia Bielefeld (3:30 p.m.). “
It will be a fight, but also with playful elements. It takes a lot of good decisions from the whole team, “said the longest-serving coach in the league:” In the first game everyone hopes to start with a good performance and a good result. There is already tension in there. “
