During the International Match Day, Dortmund defender Akanji was diagnosed with the new crown virus, Schultz was also injured in the national team, the two are currently unable to play for the Hornets. In an interview with Ruhr News, the team’s first team director Kyle said that the team is well-staffed and there are multiple solutions.
Kyle said: "Our coach is considering how to solve the problem of personnel. Our team is well-staffed and can provide many solutions. The shortage of personnel will not be an excuse for our failure."
Kyle expressed the hope that Akanji can participate in the Champions League match with Lazio, but he also said: "We have to wait and see, we must be careful about this situation, because the health of the players is the most important."
"Hazard may be back in the game against Hoffenheim at the earliest, but this is not the only game this season. There will be a lot of difficult competition weeks in the future. We need him, so we will make him come back carefully. ."
