Two English international footballers Jadon Sancho and Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund have to celebrate the holidays in Germany. Dortmund’s leadership does not give Sancho (20) and Bellingham (17) permission to return to their families in England.
Germany decided on Sunday, like many other countries, to halt all air traffic to and from the United Kingdom. These measures were taken due to the spread of a new and more contagious type of Coronavirus in England.
“So we can’t let Jadeon and Judd go to England at Christmas,” said coach Michael Zork, and Dortmund concluded the year Tuesday with a cup match against Eintracht Braunschweig. On January 3, Dortmund will resume the Bundesliga with a home game against Wolfsburg.
Erling Braut Haaland
Coach Eden Terzic, the successor to Lucian Favre who was recently fired, hopes Erling Braut Haaland will be at his disposal early next month. Dortmund’s Norwegian scorer recovers from muscle injury. “I saw Erling for the first time on Sunday,” Terzic said of the striker, who was being rehabilitated in Qatar. “We are assuming he will return in January.”
