The Bundesliga 2 in Germany was the first to have a footballer test positive for Coronavirus earlier this week. Hannover 96 defender Timo Hubers was the first to fall prey to the Coronavirus pandemic followed by teammate Jannes Horn soon after. In light of recent events, Bundesliga star Thiago Alcantara has urged German bosses to call off all football-related activities in order to fight Coronavirus in Germany.
This is crazy. Please stop fooling around and land on reality. Let's be honest, there are much more important priorities than any sport.— Thiago Alcantara (@Thiago6) March 13, 2020
Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago is adamant that Bundesliga activities be stopped until the situation surrounding Coronavirus in Germany improves in the coming weeks. The Bayern Munich star took to Twitter with a desperate plea to Bundesliga bosses that they put a halt to sporting activities as soon as possible. Top leagues across Europe (Ligue 1, LaLiga, Premier League and the Dutch league) have all been suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic. However, Bundesliga has given the go-ahead for all games this weekend except Monday's clash between Werder Bremen and Bayer Leverkusen.
