- The German league is returning this weekend but will be behind closed doors

The German top flight is due to return on Saturday for the first full weekend of fixtures since the season was shut down by the coronavirus pandemic in March.
Games are due to be played behind closed doors in a bid to minimise the risk of somebody catching Covid-19 and it seems they are not relaxing the rules for anybody.
Germany manager Joachim Low will not be allowed into Bundesliga matches when it returns
It means Low will not be able to keep track of the likes of Timo Werner for the rest of the season
According to Bild, even national team manager Low will not be granted access to watch his German players up close.
That means Low will not be able to scout the likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Serge Gnabry for when international football is up and running again.
Low was preparing to lead Germany into this summer’s European Championship before the tournament was moved back 12 months to 2021.
