Beierlorzer sees football in a small “parallel world”

Trainer Achim Beierlorzer von 1. FSV Mainz 05 understands the emotionally-driven debate about a relaunch of the football league in the Corona crisis.

“When you look at the overall situation in Germany, there are people who experience very bad fates, personally and financially”, The 52-year-old explained in an interview in the newspapers of the VRM Group.

Beierlorzer also stressed: “The DFL has developed a comprehensive concept of how the Bundesliga can be continued and maintained.”

In his opinion, this is absolutely legitimate -“one must not forget, that the clubs also have tens of thousands of fates, not just those of a handful of professional players,”stressed the coach of the Rheinhessen.

In connection with the tests to be carried out in the event of a continuation of the game, he also reaffirmed, It is understandable that criticism keeps coming up, because in many things football moves in a small parallel world as well. However, we do not want to put ourselves above society, even in the case of test capacities,”said Beierlorzer.
