Leipzig – RB Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff strongly warns against the end of the currently suspended season in the Bundesliga.

“That would be” a disaster, “said the 44-year-old in an interview with the” Bild “newspaper with a view to possible bankruptcies at the clubs. «The Bundesliga would not be as we know it. That would be a catastrophic picture and that’s why we have to do everything we can to end the season reasonably well. »

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, gameplay in professional German football is suspended at least until April 30, and the clubs want to end the season with ghost games at best until June 30. «Nobody wants games without a spectator. But I don’t think that in the current situation, it’s not a wish-what, it’s that it doesn’t mean that many clubs have to go bankrupt, »said Mintzlaff.

For his own club, the RB boss predicted: «We are not going to cash in every day. Compared to our business plan for 2020, we will certainly do worse with a double-digit million amount. However, we are currently assuming that we will play without a spectator by the end of the year. »
