Dresden Dynamo striker Alexander Jeremejeff revealed the scale of the problems Project Restart faces after he and his teammates were forced into quarantine just a few days before the Bundesliga returned.
Action is expected to resume in Germany's two main divisions on Saturday – the first major European league to do so since the coronavirus pandemic stopped the game worldwide – but what happened to Dresden this week is a story of warning for the game.
After two players tested positive for Covid-19, local health officials ordered the entire Bundesliga 2 squad to be quarantined, meaning they cannot face Hannover on Sunday. Such decisions are made by individual states, which means that they are out of the hands of German football heads.

"When the top decision came that we could train and the games were about to start, we got the whole team together and started normal sessions," Jeremejeff told the BBC's world football program. & # 39; We only did this for two days and then we had to go to that quarantine for two weeks.
& # 39; There was a lot of joy in the beginning, when we started training as a team, you see your friends and everything is normal and, two days later, you are inside your own house and you can't even go out, so it's a little bit Crazy.
We are even more late than before. When we were quarantined at the beginning of the year, we could leave the house, go for a walk, buy food. At the moment, we can't do anything, we just have to stay at home. This is a new step.
Alexander Jeremejeff, Dresden striker, admits that the current situation is a bit crazy & # 39;
& # 39; We have been doing exercises with the whole team at Zoom. We do a video conference, you watch the fitness trainer and copy your movements. It is a little strange.
The main German teams are expected to play behind closed doors from Saturday and hope to conclude the season in this way.
The Premier League is closely monitoring the Bundesliga's progress as it is unclear what would happen if there were a significant number of positive tests after the opening round.
