Wolfsburg The official farewell for the former national coach Joachim Löw should take place as planned despite the Corona case in the German national soccer team.
“It is important that we give him this framework,” said DFB director Oliver Bierhoff at a press conference in Wolfsburg and reported that the stadium was sold out on Thursday for the World Cup qualifier against Liechtenstein with 26,000 spectators under the current conditions. Before playing the national anthem, Löw is to be honored for his 15 years as head coach of the national team. The 61-year-old resigned against England (0-2) after losing in the European Championship round of 16 in the summer.
“We are pleased that we can give him a fitting farewell at the end of the year,” said Bierhoff. When saying goodbye, the 2G rule applies to all guests (vaccinated or recovered). “We continue to plan like this,” said Bierhoff.
The German Football Association had previously confirmed that Bayern professional Niklas Süle had tested positive for the corona virus. The health department in Wolfsburg then ordered quarantine for Süle’s Munich teammates Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala as well as Karim Adeyemi from Red Bull Salzburg, who had traveled together.
