Player Consultant Volker Struth sees in football business only exchange opportunities for vaccinated players in the face of the Corona Pandemic.
“If Joshua Kimmichs directors are interested in a player, for now or the coming summer, I often ask me the question of whether this is vaccinated. In the future it says: without vaccination no transfer. I’m sure,” said Struth in a ” Star “interview.
Struth advises more than 80 professionals with the agency Joshua Kimmich360, including ex-world champion Toni Kroos as well as the German international Timo Werner and Niklas Süle. Bavaria coach Julian Nagelsmann is one of his clients.
“The current transfer period is as quiet as never before in the 15 years in which I do. From our players to change to the end of the transfer period – now – at most five to six the club,” Struth said with a view to the end of the Winter transfer window on January 31st. “There are still a few days, but a lot is not that anymore. Corona has changed our business significantly.”
Criticism said Struth at national player Joshua Kimmich from FC Bayern Munich, who publicly defended his vaccine skepticism in autumn and had long defended himself against vaccination before he finally dispede Corona.
“I’ve wondered what would happen if every second Bundesliga player had had the attitude of Joshua Kimmich. Then the league could have stopped their operation,” Struth said.
