“The corona break made my rehab easier because I just don’t have the time pressure to play three, four, five games again to go to the European Championship,” he said in an interview with the news agency SID.
“We are blessed as footballers”
“The EM was in my head. And I strongly believed that I could have done it. But that would have been a risk after this serious injury,” continued the defender. And adds: “Now it is of course a very clear advantage that I have a whole year left until the European Championship.”
The defender also knows about his good position as a footballer: “Of course I want to get fit and play again, but the important thing is that my family is well, that everyone is healthy. We as football professionals are blessed when you see how many companies have to close down or that some families don’t even know what to do next. “
