“The club defends itself against such behavior and at the same time did not knowingly or unknowingly participate in this offense. The players were regularly warned as a precaution about the need to thoroughly check all dietary supplements for the presence of prohibited substances.
According to the players’ contract, they are obliged to consult the composition of all medicines and nutritional supplements with the club doctor before taking them. This is also done regularly, but in this case it did not happen for an unknown reason.
There was therefore an individual violation of this rule by the affected players.”Read also We are not approaching the Russians or the Czechs. “I haven’t seen the team the Germans had at the World Cup for a long time,” says Draisaitl
