Monchengladbach – For the family life of national team player Matthias Ginter (26), the corona forced break also has advantages.
“The nights are a little shorter because of our son, but it’s incredibly nice to be able to spend so many moments with him and admire every moment,” said Borussia Monchengladbach’s professional footballer at the Rheinische Post. The current situation with a severely restricted training activity due to the corona pandemic feels “like a summer break without vacation” for the defender of the Bundesliga fourth.
For Ginter, the crisis shows that “one should be grateful and humble every day, appreciate health and safety and take nothing for granted”. He hoped that football would also focus more on values such as cohesion and solidarity. But this would “be difficult to implement because football is very fast-paced and results-oriented,” said Ginter. “But you can at least work to ensure that this current humanity continues to grow in the professional business.”
