“In my opinion, the fact that the bond between fan, partners and the live experience breaks for too long is a bigger problem,” said the former national player in an interview with the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” (Thursday). Spectators at sports events are again not allowed in Bavaria for the time being. “If that lasts any longer, there is a risk that consumer behavior will finally change in a dubious direction. Once you’ve gotten used to something, it’s difficult to get used to it again,” warned Pesic.
With a view to the current ghost scenes, the 45-year-old also criticized politics. “We have concepts that have been proven to work. And I have never heard of an outbreak in a basketball hall, not even in handball or ice hockey. We exceed the requirements, the fans came last vaccinated and additionally tested, all disciplined with a mask. But when it did If this goes on longer, some will come to the subsistence limit, “said Pesic. “It goes without saying that our obligation is to create the conditions for safe events. But we did! But why didn’t politicians develop a concept in the summer, for example, that Christmas markets can also work in such a situation? Again: The basic measures I do not criticize. ”
