Munich - The football expert Marcel Reif is a regular guest at the double pass on Sport1.

Double pass: Marcel Reif criticizes measures taken by Adidas in the corona crisis
The former sports commentator directed the topic to the Adidas discussion himself after Bayern players * Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich talked about their action to support victims of the corona virus. Goretzka said that the newly founded charity “We kick Corona” had already raised 3.6 million euros . Then it broke out of frost.
First he buttoned up Markus Söder , who asked professional footballers two weeks ago to forego their salary. "I hope the Bavarian Prime Minister is a little satisfied. He believed he had to remind the soccer players, ”said Reif. But that wasn't the end of Reif's crisp monologue.
Corona virus in sports: Marcel Reif on Adidas - "I have it ..."
"Perhaps Adidas could join you," said Reif jokingly in the direction of Goretzka and Kimmich. "What you save on rents, she could put a little in your house." The situation would be "a bit brazen".
Who pays no rent after a week:
- H&M (2019 profit: € 1.27 billion)
- Adidas (2019 profit: € 2 billion)
Who continues to pay rent:
- the café around the corner
- the small bookshop
- the Baker
- the little theater
Simply brilliant how this market regulates.
He emphasized that “soccer players, whom you like to assume that you have far too few brain cells and think only in gigantic transfer amounts, come up with such ideas. And a company like Adidas says that we no longer pay rents. ”In the end, he addressed the Bayern professionals and said“ Hat off! ”, But allowed himself another swipe in the direction of Adidas. "I did n't expect it otherwise ..."

The CEO of the Dax company from Herzogenaurach, Kasper Rorstedt, recently announced that it would suspend rental payments for business. He announced that the sporting goods manufacturer, “like many other companies, temporarily suspends rent payments as a precaution when our stores are closed. We are in close contact with the landlords concerned. The exact procedure also depends on the legal situation in the respective country. "
