The German league says that this quarantine is’ mandatory ‘and adds that the bubble’ intends’ to provide extra security for the games, especially given the time pressure caused by the Euro that starts in June ‘
A German Football League (DFL) announced on Thursday, 22, the creation of a bubble for the last three rounds of the two divisions of the German Championship. The reason for the measure adopted by the entity is the appearance of cases of Covid-19 between clubs, which turned on a warning signal in the country. In an official statement, DFL explains that, in the first phase, which comes into force on May 3, “the people who are included in the regular testing program – cast, technical committee and staff – must be only at home and on the premises training and game ”. “The goal is to reduce contact and minimize the risk of infection,” added the note. In the next phase, which comes into force on May 12, the same groups of people from the 36 clubs (18 from each division) will go to “quarantine training centers”, after having a negative test carried out at most 24 hours in advance. .
The German league says that this quarantine is “mandatory” until the last game of the team in the 34th and last round and adds that the “bubble” intends to “provide extra security for the games, especially considering the pressure of time caused by the Euro that starts in June ”. The most emblematic case happened to Hertha Berlin, of the German elite, who announced last Thursday that the entire cast, employees and the technical committee entered a period of 14 days of quarantine. The move came after confirmation of more positive cases for the new coronavirus within the club. Coach Pal Dardai, assistant Admir Hamzagic and striker Dodi Lukebakio were infected with the covid-19 virus. Who also tested positive, but without symptoms, was left-back Marvin Plattenhardt. Brazilian striker Matheus Cunha is part of the squad, but is not among the confirmed cases.
