Eintracht coach denounces “completely absurd rules”.

Eintracht Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner has complained about “completely absurd rules” among spectators in professional football.

“I haven’t understood it for a long time. Example: 13,700 were allowed in Magdeburg. Theoretically, 13,700 Eintracht fans who are not allowed in the stadium could have taken the train to Magdeburg to fill the stadium there. That says it all,” said the 47-year-old Austrian in a Sky interview.

Glasner was referring to 1. FC Magdeburg’s most recent third division game against TSV Havelse. Eintracht was only allowed to have 1000 fans in the Bundesliga against Arminia Bielefeld due to the corona. “Football has to act as a bogeyman due to the public attention and charisma, although I think it has been proven that there are de facto no infections in the stadium,” criticized Glasner.

Professional football with a pioneering role

Football was never preferred. “It was the first industry to think about how we can keep the game going. In other words, how we can pursue our business model. It was only later that gastronomy and the hotel industry followed suit, and I still miss it in the schools today,” he explained. Professional football has a pioneering role for many industries.

Glasner would also “sign everything that Aki Watzke said.” Hans-Joachim Watzke, Managing Director of Borussia Dortmund, had criticized the refusal of the federal and state governments to open the football stadiums to spectators in clear words and is even considering legal action. “We will take a close look at the decisions of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and check whether we can have them checked in an urgent procedure,” he told the German Press Agency.
