What They're Saying: Heiko Herrlich

“I made a mistake by leaving the hotel. Even though I followed all hygiene measures both when I left the hotel and otherwise, I cannot undo this. In this situation I did not live up to my role model function towards my team and the public. I will therefore be consistent and stand by my mistake. Because of this mistake I will not lead the training tomorrow and I will not coach the team in the match against Wolfsburg on Saturday.”
