Tyler Adams describes current training arrangements (MLS)

Clubs in Germany have recently returned to training amidst talk the Bundesliga could soon. RB Leipzig is one of these clubs and Tyler Adams was interviewed about he’s been training in the past weeks.

The young American was happy to be back in training, but acknowledged that there are some limitations with the current circumstances. He said,

It’s a little bit tricky because you can only do certain passing drills, you can do dribbling, you can do running and fitness and finishing

Adams is pleased at how the Coronavirus situation has been handled in Germany and praised the German public for how they have complied with regulations:

I do feel safe. The way Germany has handled it has been not only very efficient, but people are following the rules. If people are out, they are wearing masks and gloves

Adams is excited to be potentially playing games again soon. However, he stressed that safety was of paramount importance, and therefore would be happy with playing “ghost games” if needed:

Being able to go out and play would be a great feeling, but only want to do so when it keeps everybody safe — all the players, all the staff involved in running games and, of course, the fans. If we continue to play with no spectators and that keeps them safe, we would be glad to do that.
