Heidel thinks Bundesliga excitement is good: "What we have been wishing for for years"

In the Bundesliga, the race for the top spots is still open. Instead of complaining about the supposedly poor quality of the league, Christian Heidel emphasizes how positive the season so far should be seen.

Either you want the strongest possible top group in the Bundesliga, which is then also positioned as well as possible internationally, or you prefer an exciting and open fight for the European places. Both together is difficult to reconcile.

After complaining about the one-dimensionality of the league for the last few years, because FC Bayern always won the championship anyway and the same teams always played in the Champions League, there has been a very open race for the top six or seven places in the table so far.

This not only pleases numerous football fans, but also Christian Heidel. The sports director of Mainz can only gain very little from the repeated complaining that the quality of the league would drop and the start of the season would be proof of this.

"Somehow it is typically German that this is also seen negatively again. There are now doubts and complaints about the quality of German football, because teams like Union and Freiburg and not Bayern and Dortmund are at the top," he explained opposite the picture.

Instead, he would rather enjoy the excitement, as he emphasized: "It's exciting this year, anyone can beat anyone - and that's exactly what we've always wanted for years! At least I think it's top in this season."

The 05ers are also a good example of this: on the one hand they are in twelfth place, on the other hand they are only two points behind the first international place seven. There are only three points up to the Europa League.

"It hasn't been this close in the league for a long time," said the 59-year-old.

Although the season is still quite young with only nine matchdays played and Bayern are still the clear favorite for the vast majority of officials and fans when it comes to the championship - the way there is different this year. At least in the first few months.

In view of Union Berlin's lead in the table, Heidel also had praise for the Irons: "They probably have the oldest team in the league and do it well with their experience. Sure, they may not play the most attractive football, but they are extremely good defensively ."
