Alexander Rosen, the Director of Football, reiterated: "Based on our close consultation with the DFL and in accordance with its recommendations, we're continuing to take responsible action. Our players will continue with their individual training programmes, taking into account the clear guidelines set by our training staff. There's more to it than just physical fitness. Insofar as it is possible under the current circumstances, we're also trying to provide our lads with a comprehensive range of support options such as cognitive training opportunities, match scenes with tactical content and even nutritional tips."
Given the continued spread of the coronavirus, the German Football League (DFL) held an extraordinary members' meeting on 16 March to address the consequences for the Bundesliga and the Bundesliga 2. Sporting competition was initially suspended until 30 April at least. A decision as to how to proceed with the remainder of the fixture list will be taken at another DFL extraordinary members' meeting this Tuesday.
