Kehl on the preparation: "Everything is a little different"

 Kehl on the preparation: On Monday, the preparations for the 2020/21 season for the Borussia Dortmund players really start with the first team training. The corona pandemic will pose special challenges for those responsible at BVB in the coming weeks.

Everything is a little different today and I'm sure as we wait and hear the names of the victims, I'm afraid all of us here in Coral Springs and Parkland will be a lot different going forward. There's a difference in something being "too close to home" this happened at home. Praying for these families

On Monday, the preparations for the 2020/21 season for the Borussia Dortmund players really start with the first team training. The corona pandemic will pose special challenges for those responsible at BVB in the coming weeks. Youngster Jude Bellingham, for example, needs a special setup.

No, spectators are not allowed on the Borussia training grounds when BVB coach Lucien Favre calls his team on Monday morning for the first time in this summer preparation. However, the action is recorded by cameras and broadcast live on the Internet. So the black and yellow pendants can be there, if only virtually. It is no different in times when the COVID 19 case numbers are rising again.

First Corona test, then performance diagnostics

But the Corona pandemic does not severely restrict the opportunities for fans to take part, and the situation also has completely new requirements for Borussia Dortmund's players, coaches and managers. Before the performance diagnostics completed on the weekend, two corona tests had to be carried out. Only then did the individual players get the green light. "Many were on vacation, some abroad. We wanted to be on the safe side and minimize the risk as much as possible," explains license player manager Sebastian Kehl on Dortmund club TV, explaining the idea behind the tests.

But not only the start, but also the preparation itself will run differently this time than usual. BVB will be traveling to the training camp in Bad Ragaz (Switzerland, August 10th to 17th) this year - for the tenth time. Training sessions or test games with spectators, however, will not take place there either. Selfie and autograph sessions are also prohibited.

Kehl: "We want to make a difference this year"

And then there would be the international match period at the end of August / beginning of September. Even before the Bundesliga team play their first game of the season, the national players are on the program with their selection teams. "That," says Kehl, "is a great challenge. But everything is a little different this year." This does not change the "good feeling" that he has in view of the new season. "We want to train intensively in order to start the season in the best possible way. Because we want to make a difference this year."

Newcomer Jude Bellingham is to help. The 17-year-old, who was worth 25 million euros from BVB, played with his former club Birmingham City until the middle of July for not relegating from the English championship. Afterwards, he continued practically without a break to Dortmund, where he familiarized himself with the new environment before the official start of the training session.

"He is on fire and wanted to be there right from the start. This shows how Jewish ticks and how great his anticipation is," says Kehl of the youngster's ambition, which will be used in future in central Borussia midfield. First, however, the club will build its newcomer carefully - according to Kehl, the plan is: "He has had a very long year, which was not easy for him. We have to balance the burden well for him."
