Borussia returns to work, in the field and in pairs

first_imgWhile one part is in the gym, the other goes to the training ground to exercise on the grass. In this case they do it in pairs and with time intervals. The Bundesliga will be stopped, at least, until April 30, but the teams are slowly returning to activity in a controlled manner. Borussia distributed its players throughout the fields of the sports city and has established shifts so that they are staggered upon arrival at the facilities. Specific and personal training plans are behind us. The obsession is to feel the feeling of the grass and the ball as soon as possible, while at the same time the battle against the coronavirus is taking place. Germany has more than 63,000 infections, but has only registered 560 fatalities. Borussia Dortmund do not wait any longer. The Ruhr club has taken the step and today its players have traveled to the sports city to resume training. They have already left confinement behind to return to work, although Favre’s team does it in a very controlled way. Thus, a detailed plan has been designed so that the measures to avoid the spread of the coronavirus are respected. The staff has been divided into pairs and groups.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Spyros Kouvelis will head a Greek mission to quake-stricken Haiti with humanitarian aid, comprised of 50 tons of pharmaceutical supplies, foodstuffs and tents. A Hellenic Aid financial assistance of 200,000 euros was approved soon after the devastating earthquake and was channelled to the UN World Food Programme. In a press conference on Thursday, Kouvelis stated that he will deliver a letter by PM George Papandreou addressed to his Haitian counterpart focusing on the Greek aid, historical bilateral relations and the Greek Government’s pledge to continue to support the country. Kouvelis underlined that Greece’s next initiative is to contribute to the reconstruction of health infrastructure for children. The Greek humanitarian aid will arrive in Haiti on board a Hellenic Imperial Airways Boeing 747 aircraft. The airline will cover 50 pct of the transport costs. A five-member special team formed by Medecins du Monde and the Greek Rescue Team will also be transported to Haiti and offer its assistance. In consultation with the Spanish EU Presidency the Greek airplane will be used for the repatriation of European citizens who are still in Haiti.last_img read more
