Licensed player boss Sebastian Kehl from Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund is relieved that the Super League did not prevail.
“We were always opposed to these plans,” said Kehl Funke media group: “I’m glad that some clubs realized in the end that the path they were taking was the wrong one.”
From the point of view of the 41-year-old, professional football must get closer to the grassroots again. “With everything we do, we mustn’t forget that we don’t play football for its own sake, but for the people.” He already had this attitude as a BVB player, “and that has not changed in my current position either”.
Kehl played for Dortmund for a total of 13 years, since June 2018 he has headed the Black and Yellows’ licensing division. In the summer of 2022, the former midfielder will succeed sports director Michael Zorc.
