30 April, the German government should permit or prohibit the resumption of the Bundesliga in may, and the CEO of Borussia Dortmund Hans-Joachim Watzke believes that clubs and the League did their best.
“We have developed and handed over to the government our plan on page 41 security during the matches. And we continue to improve it”.
“If the government will accept it, then we can start on the 9th or 16th of may. And if the Bundesliga gets back, then it can affect other Championships, because they were watching to see who will go first.”
“Hard to improve our concept of security is not released. Clubs have done almost everything I could. Waiting for the decision of the authorities.”
“If not allowed to play now, it makes sense to talk about the matches in June will not be. Nothing by June will not change, to hold games without fans even more secure than we have proposed, it is impossible”.
“In that case, if the play is going to stop us, the consequences will be catastrophic for the Bundesliga,” said Watzke.
It is not excluded, that the decision of the French government, which banned football until September, will be recorded in Germany.
