Bayer Leverkusen CEO Fernando Carro wants spectators at DFB Pokal final

Bayer Leverkusen CEO Fernando Carro wants the German FA (DFB) to allow fans of both Leverkusen and Bayern Munich to attend the DFB Pokal final.

“I would hope that 5000 spectators per club would be allowed. We expect the DFB to develop a concept for the cup final so that at least some of our fans can be there,” said Carro.

Football has been played behind closed doors following the restart on May 16 following the coronavirus pandemic. 

Bayer Leverkusen will play in the DFB Pokal final for the first time since 2009 after beating 3. Liga side 1. FC Saarbrücken, where they will play Bayern Munich.

Carro also offered an update on Kai Havertz, who is being courted by Europe’s elite clubs: “I can see that many clubs are interested in him.

“Kai has been with us for ten years. I see the wish of the player to take his next step sometime in the near future, which you have to respect, just as you have to respect the fact that he has a contract with us until 2022.”
