Legendary Arsenal goalkeeperJens Lehmann got infected with coronavirus in March. Now, it has been reported that he has been declared healthy and almost recovered.
In response to BILD, he confirmed “Yes, I got infected in mid-March, suffered from a cough and a fever. After two weeks of quarantine, I was declared to be healthy. It was easier than flu. But people that are at risk group have to be careful, of course. It probably helps to live reasonably healthy.”
Lehmann was also asked how he feels about the fierce criticism of his idea to allow at least 20 percent of the stadium’s capacity for the public: “I have not heard a reasonable counter-argument yet. If only every fourth place is taken, there is enough distance between each other. Anyone who violates the distance rule will be kicked out and banned from the stadium. In general, I think Schäuble’s statements are very good: we have to start up Germany again so that the economy can survive. This considers all sectors of the economy, including the Bundesliga.”
It certainly looks as if his battle with coronavirus has not dimmed the talented goaltender’s passion for football.
