Werder Bremen is fighting against forced relegation with seven clubs
Bremen – SV Werder Bremen is not only fighting against relegation in terms of sport, but now also politically. There has already been an initial vote as to whether the German Football League (DFL) will prevail with its plan to use the current table for all sporting decisions in the event of a season break.
According to the “kicker”, ten first division clubs voted for the proposal, eight against – including the one SV Werder Bremen. However: The final decision on this topic planned for Thursday at the DFL general meeting with all 36 professional clubs is around a week adjourned been. After all, a partial success for Werder – and there are at least seven first division clubs who think similarly to the Bremen team.
The alarm bells are still ringing in Bremen, there is great concern that the traditional club should be pushed out of the Bundesliga. The phone wires are glowing. Wednesday afternoon was in preparation for the DFL general assembly a partial meeting of the 18 first division teams. There the topic of season break was hotly debated.
Werder Bremen: Forced relegation when season ends?
The officials of the SV Werder Bremen did not want to comment in advance in order not to pour oil into the fire as requested by the DeichStube was called. But of course it is clear that the people of Bremen reject the proposal. Because as tables.-17. SV Werder is the hardest hit by the DFL plan, in addition to the rear of SC Paderborn. Both clubs would have to be in the second division if the season were to be canceled due to further coronavirus cases in the division. This latent danger would remain in the next few weeks – and Werder has the disadvantage of having played a game less than the competition. The catch-up game against Eintracht Frankfurt is only for the 2nd / 3rd Scheduled for June.
The Dynamo Dresden case had that DFL encouraged to work in this area. After positive tests, the entire team from the bottom of the table in the second division had been sent to a 14-day quarantine last Saturday. The Saxons will miss at least two games and should actually have a longer break due to the large training gap. But time is short, the season has to be whipped through to the end of June.
Werder Bremen and Co .: DFL wants to prevent provoked termination of the season
Should more Quarantines would follow from whole teams, a regulated game operation would no longer be possible, the termination probably the consequence. With its plan, the DFL wants to prevent clubs that have been knocked out Provoke demolition – for example, caused infections or crowds of fans. So far, these clubs could have hoped that there were no relegations. Now the 36 Bundesliga teams should decide that there should definitely be two relegated teams in each of the two leagues.
“We will probably discuss the topic last Thursdayforced termination of the season‘ to treat. The last time is because I am convinced that this will not happen, “said Peter Peters, Chairman of the DFL Supervisory Board, in the dpa interview:” But for this absolutely unlikely case, one thing is certain for me: there will be no increase – and it has to also give rise and descent. “
Werder Bremen: DFL had surprised with the idea of forced relegation
However, the question is: what happens when the table-16. the Season break triggers and thereby ensures relegation? This topic could also be very interesting in the fight for the title or the international places.
On Tuesday evening, the DFL had surprised its 36 members with the idea of forced relegation. It was part of an application package that had been sent to the clubs prior to the general meeting on Thursday. The DFL Presidium, under the leadership of Christian Seifert, the Chairman of the Executive Board, prepared a corresponding resolution proposal. At this point it should only be mentioned in passing that the other eight members of the Presidium otherwise work for clubs that are not in immediate danger of relegation: Peter Peters (FC Schalke 04), Oliver Leki (SC Freiburg), Steffen Schneekloth (Holstein Kiel) ), Jan-Christian Dreesen (FC Bayern), Rüdiger Fritsch (Darmstadt 98), Oke Göttlich (FC. St. Pauli), Ansgar Schwenken (DFB), Alexander Wehrle (1. FC Köln). (knee)
