RB Leipzig, BVB and Co.: The Bundesliga clubs no longer want to accept the current viewer restrictions and are considering a lawsuit.
“We will also check with other Bundesliga clubs if there is no quick solution here, whether and how we can proceed legally,” said managing director Oliver Mintzlaff from RB Leipzig to “Bild”.
He joined a similar push by Borussia Dortmund boss Hans-Joachim Watzke, which Mintzlaff finds “absolutely right”.
The RB boss (46) called for “pragmatic, logical and understandable decisions” from politicians. The results of the most recent prime ministers’ conference in relation to major events are “incomprehensible to us” and “of course disappointing,” he emphasized, and complained: “We are doing symbolic politics.”
In general, “people felt fooled,” said Mintzlaff, referring to the example of the convalescent regulation, which is reduced to three months for the population, while it remains at six months in the Bundestag.
“The federal government cannot paint the world as it likes it. That ends in a zigzag course that people no longer support.”
