ROME – "It is impossible that football can restart for this season and we will have to wait for the next one, remembering that this sport has had a strong impact on the dynamics of the spread of the coronavirus ". This is the warning launched by the German virologist Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit of the Berhard -Nocht Institute in Hamburg, which even excludes the dispute of games behind closed doors.
"It is not realistic to think that this football season will end," said the 40-year-old Berlin scholar who also collaborates with WHO on the German TV channel Nrd.
"I don't think we can talk about going back to play in April," warned Schmidt-Chanasit, "not even behind closed doors because potentially people could gather in their homes to watch the games." "Football will only restart at the end of everything, because it has had a strong impact on the dynamics of spread" of the coronavirus, he insisted.
The Bundesliga has suspended the season until April 2, but an extension of the stop is taken for granted. German League (DFL) CEO Christian Seifert has warned that matches behind closed doors would be the only way to save the season and avoid bankruptcy of some clubs that face bankruptcy . (Source Agi).
