Augsburg – Stefan Reuter, manager of the Bundesliga soccer club FC Augsburg, has defended himself against accusations of not adhering to the training recommendations of the German Soccer League.
The clubs had been asked by the DFL to only let their professionals train individually until April 5. The Bavarian Bundesliga club from Augsburg, like some other teams, had resumed team training operations to a limited extent. “Nobody complained to me or us about distortion of competition, not at all,” said 53-year-old Reuter of “Bild”.
“We are in an exchange among the clubs, everyone is looking for a way to keep the players in the best possible shape – so that they are prepared for day X if it continues,” said the former soccer world champion. “Going from 0 to 100 is very dangerous,” warned Reuter. “It is also clear to us that if there is a clear commitment from all professional clubs to only train individually at home, we would agree.”
