Normally the DFL "rules" say that "thou shall not spit" . They were. The football fields in the Bundesliga matches are the safest places in the whole republic so to say. Until Friday last week there were 3 testing series for every player in every club, then the team had to go for 1 week into isolation/quarantine (and I bet they were tested there again) btw: Augsburg's new coach Heiko Herrlich couldn't be on the bench for his first match against Wolfsburg (1-2 loss) because he (undeliberately) violated the isolation. He said he had no toothpaste and went shopping to buy a tube exactly. Nübel made himself a clown in the Köln match (Schalke lost 3-0 and Nübel had several big mistakes) and was then replaced by Schubert who himself looked very bad before in some matches. Both are what we call in German a "Fliegenfänger" (flycatcher?). If Manuel Neuer really wants to play until he's 39 then Nübel will have a broad arse from sitting on the substitute bench all the time.
