The Bundesliga giants are in Glasgow ahead of tomorrow’s last-16 first-leg against Rangers at Ibrox, with around 50,000 supporters expected in Govan with the match expected to go ahead as planned.
However, as we told you yesterday, the return match in Germany next week will be played behind closed doors without any fans in attendance at the BayArena, as authorities battle to contain the spreading pandemic.
But despite his side potentially being mentioned as one of the dark horses to win the competition, Bosz reckons it could be about time that UEFA steps in and completely halts all Europa League action – for the time being, at least.
Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s clash, via the Sun, he explained: “What is happening in Europe at the moment is strange.
“And next Monday we will play without fans which is something we shouldn’t do as we play for the fans as professional soccer players and they are not allowed to be there.
“I don’t understand it – but I’m not the president of the federation.
“I’m looking forward to tomorrow as we’re playing in front of fans.”
Asked if the Europa League should be postponed or continued, the Dutchman responded instantly: “Postponed, absolutely.
“But I understand. We don’t know where all this is going, everything is usually planned until the end of May.
“If you start to postpone games, when do you stop postponing them?
“But we play this game for the fans and if they are not there, it ISN’T right.
“I don’t know as I haven’t experienced this before. I watched Juve against Inter behind closed doors and it was strange.
“You could hear everyone in the stadium saying everything.
“To be honest, the competition has been devalued. Fans should be there.
“No-one is to blame, but it is strange.”
