How do you not go so that you don't know whether the world Cup will be carried out at all?
We must be this state of uncertainty, aware of it and deal with it. Of course, it can inhibit the Motivation in the Team. Since I am also in demand as a leadership person. Energy you can give only when you are in a positive mood. We must not lose sight of the magnificence of this project. And just in the last few weeks before the world Cup, very exciting things are in regards to the organization.
you Roll around currently, also different scenarios? Would it be conceivable to move the world Cup to a few weeks back?
I can tell you anything for the moment. The next fixture is the 15. March. Then we know whether the decision of the Federal Council in terms of large-scale events continues. In the short term, we need to take no action because the world Cup takes place only in two months. Since other operators are prompted to close. But of course, we have to clarify it, different scenarios.
