Nagelsmann does not want to “complain” about CL laying
Manager Julian Nagelsmann sees no serious disadvantage in the relocation of the Champions League home game from football federal league RB Leipzig to Budapest against FC Liverpool on 16 February.
“We are glad that we are even allowed to play. Particular circumstances require special measures. It’s no time to complain now, “Nagelsmann said during an online press conference on Wednesday.
Due to the corona restrictions, which currently prohibit entry from the high-risk country of Great Britain to Germany, the quarter-finals game was moved to the Hungarian capital.
For Nagelsmann, the home game against FC Augsburg on Friday night is not endangered despite the continued cold wave. “I expect that we will play, even if it gets rather frosty according to my temperature forecast,” said the RB coach.
In Saxony, double-digit minus degrees are possible on Friday, when there is no cold, Nagelsmann did not know. At some point, there would be a danger to the alveoli, “when it’s so extremely cold and you breathe in cold air very quickly,” the coach said: “But we’re still a long way from that.”
