UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin has welcomed the news that Germany will bring back Bundesliga soon.
The Bundesliga will be Europe’s first major league to restart after the coronavirus pandemic when matches begin again on May 16.
“It is great news that the German authorities have agreed that the Bundesliga can return,” Ceferin said according to MARCA.
“It is the result of constructive dialogue and careful planning between the football authorities and politicians and I am confident that Germany will provide a shining example to all of us in how to bring football – with all its excitement, emotion and unpredictability – back into our lives. I wish everyone connected with this every success.”
He believes it will do the people of Germany (and beyond) loads of good: “This is a huge and positive step in bringing optimism back to people’s lives.”
