Kiel (dpa / lno) - Filip Jicha and the handball players at THW Kiel do not want to be thrown off course by the second corona quarantine: “Nothing will change in our goals.
As soon as we are allowed to, we will be there and want to perform, ”said the coach of the German record champions and defending champions the“ Kieler Nachrichten ”(Tuesday).
Winning the 22nd championship is right at the top of the agenda.
The "zebras" are again in domestic isolation after an unnamed player tested positive for the corona virus after the Champions League game against Motor Zaporozhye (34:23) last week.
As a result, the Bundesliga game against SC DHfK Leipzig scheduled for Sunday was canceled.
The European Handball Federation (EHF) has also taken the game against Zaporozhye in Ukraine planned for Wednesday off the schedule.
Jicha is sure that his players will keep themselves at a high level of fitness in home training.
“The boys have already proven what they are capable of,” the 38-year-old Czech recalled the first forced break: “I know that we will survive the quarantine period.
We just have to come to terms with it. "
The THW coach hopes that the handball clubs will not have more corona cases: "It would be great if we were the last to be affected."
However, Jicha fears “that this will unfortunately not be the case”.
