Fredi Bobic sees professional football facing radical changes as a result of the corona pandemic – also for the major European clubs.
“They will still be there – but in which league and form? The longer everything takes, the more crucial the question of how to get equity,” said the managing director of Hertha BSC to the “editorial network Germany”. The Berlin Bundesliga team is “very grateful that we have some, but it melts quickly,” said the 50-year-old.
Football will “recover from Corona,” said Bobic. For example, he expects a less heated transfer market. “There will still be big transfers because there are still people with a lot of money. But in Germany we will handle them very carefully and tend to reduce them,” he said.
For Hertha, the managing director had already emphasized that the lucrative home games against 1. FC Köln, Union Berlin and FC Bayern would have to keep saving just because of the lack of audience income in January.
According to a report in the “Bild” newspaper, Berliners are facing the commitment of the French talent Kelian Nsona. Hertha is said to be in agreement with the 19-year-old from SM Caen, and negotiations will be held on a transfer in January. The association has not yet commented on the personnel. Winger Nsona tore a cruciate ligament last year and is still building up after the injury.
