In the 1:2 defeat to Borussia Mönchengladbach, Bayern had to start from behind. Due to the corona virus alone, the German record champions had to do without ten players. Keeper Sven Ulreich therefore takes the DFL to court.
“It is then a bit irresponsible for the DFL to play such a game, because it is also about the health of the players,” Ulreich criticized de Sportschau. In his opinion, the meeting should have been postponed due to the huge staffing problems Bayern had.
“The conditions were obviously very difficult for the team, also because you never knew if you would play,” he added to Sport1. “I don’t know if the game really needed to be played.”
Only players who had never played a Bundesliga minute before were on the Bayern bench. Most were taken from their own U23. “We had ten field players who are usually in training with us, the rest came from the youth or the second team,” said Ulreich.
The chairman of the board, Oliver Kahn, made a similar statement. “We accept the DFL rules for today. But the rules were made at a time when Corona did not exist,” he said before the match at DAZN.
Bayern had to do it against Gladbach without a total of 14 players. In addition to the corona patients, Kingsley Coman, Alphonso Davies, Lucas Hernandez, Manuel Neuer, Tanguy Nianzou, Omar Richards, Leroy Sane, Corentin Tolisso, Christopher Scott and Dayot Upamecano, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Bouna Sarr were absent (each for the Africa Cup). ) as well as Josip Stanisic and Leon Goretzka (both injured).
