Before Schalke Kracher: good news on the Corona for FC St. Pauli

Timing isn’t always everything, but sometimes it helps immensely. Changes to the crown quarantine rules by the city of Hamburg on Thursday morning came just in time for FC St. Pauli. The reduction in isolation to five days ensured that the ten successful professionals could leave their four walls again. This gives hope.

“Everyone out,” coach Timo Schultz reported at noon. The courses were different. “We had everything from severe to almost nonexistent symptoms.” Players with no or mild symptoms who have already subsided could be considered for the away match against Schalke. The shortening of the quarantine gave St. Pauli the opportunity to test candidates on the training ground.

“We need to see how the boys are doing and who we can possibly include in the training,” Schultz explained. Mentioning names or a number would be “speculative,” the coach said. “Kids have to be healthy, pass all tests and be able to train and play.”

There is hope, but the starting XI will be made up almost entirely of non-infected players who have been training all week. “Maybe we will have some guys in the squad, but more for substitutions,” said Schultz. Those who are not on the bus to Gelsenkirchen on Friday will not be able to travel on Saturday either. The coach clarifies: “There will be nothing wild”.
