Stindl about fan proximity: “Rethinking takes place”
Captain Lars Stindl of Bundesliga club Borussia Mönchengladbach has spoken positively about the abolition of the Monday games as of 2021.
“There already seems to be one or two rethinking taking place. Of course, there are always things to discuss, but these are small steps to get football closer to the fans again,” Stindl told the news portal t-online.
The 30-year-old attacker regrets, however, that not all Bundesliga matches can be seen on one TV channel anymore: “Basically, it was pretty cool when it was all still on one station.”
Stindl can understand the anger about fan-unfriendly kick-off times, but from his point of view one has to accept them: “But because more money is generated in this way in the Bundesliga, we are internationally competitive.
The kick-off time on Saturday at 3.30 p.m. is, however, inviolable for the eleven-time German national player and Confed Cup winner. “I think it’s really great and the whole of Germany has enjoyed it for decades,” said Stindl.
