Helge Leonhardt: “We just have to put the protection of people in the foreground, be role models.”
Aue (AP) – President Helge Leonhardt from the second division soccer club FC Erzgebirge Aue calls for an interruption of the game.
“We need a football lockdown by the end of December. The next four weeks will be extremely difficult for our country and will be an acid test for us. Smart and orderly action will be required there, without chaotic actions, ”said the 63-year-old of“ Bild ”.
The incidence in the Erzgebirge district on Tuesday was 1346.4. Leonhardt therefore advised being careful with greed. “We just have to put the protection of people in the foreground, be role models,” said the entrepreneur in an interview with “Sport im Osten”, “I am also sending this appeal to the DFL, regardless of whether it is heard there or not.”
In view of the increasing cases of corona infection in the teams, Leonhardt sees a distortion of competition, as players are canceled for the games. In addition, the admission of viewers is handled differently in the federal states. In Saxony, no more visitors are allowed in the top three leagues. “It cannot be the goal to whip through the first half of the season at any cost until Christmas,” said Leonhardt.
