Leverkusen (dpa) - Peter Bosz would prefer not to turn off his players in the upcoming international break, but sees no chance to enforce this.

«I understand Jürgen Klopp.

I would love to keep every player I still have in the squad here.

But I don't think he or I can do it.

We have to turn off the players, ”said the Bayer Leverkusen coach on Friday.

Liverpool coach Klopp had previously stated that players should not be turned off if they had to be quarantined afterwards.

This season, Leverkusen has been particularly hard hit by failures.

In addition to long injuries, three cruciate ligament injuries as well as an Achilles tendon injury and a broken fibula, Bayer already complained about positive corona tests in six players this season.

“When the players go to the internationals, you are a bit afraid,” said Bosz: “Although I'm currently afraid every day because we are tested every day and the results come in the evening.

When the doctor calls me, my heartbeat is already heading towards 200, and I think: Not another case! "
