After the positive Corona test result at Amadou Haidara, RB Leipzig’s Sports Director Markus Krsche questioned the placement of national players for games in Corona risk areas.
“When you see the rising numbers, you have to start thinking about whether it makes sense to cancel in the next withdrawal period. There must be a clear directive from FIFA on how to proceed with the suspension, especially in areas at risk,”said the sports director of the football league on Saturday at”Sky”.
Malian national player Haidara is missing from the top game at FC Augsburg on Saturday. The Corona values for the 22-year-old were below the normal limit of proof that he was not infectious, said Krkruche.
Despite the positive result, Haidara would not have to be quarantined after consultation with the health authorities. Leipzig said the centre fielder had been “preventively isolated” in agreement with the German Football League. About a week ago, Haidara and his national team were in the field against Ghana and scored a hit in the 3:0 victory.
That the players themselves were not going to take any selections was a difficult decision, Krsche said. It is not, in principle, the issue of the players, but we must make a fundamental decision as to how we deal with it in this situation. Above all, we associations need the support of FIFA. Thus it is difficult for us to leave the boys at home,”said the Sports Director.
