"If it is anything but a manageable vocation, individuals will just stop. That is the truth," Baer-Hoffmann said in a telephone meeting. 

"Yet additionally I think all the more comprehensively there's something in question as far as being an ideal objective for unfamiliar players," he included.

An inability to care for footballers harms the game "both regarding players leaving the game, which decreases the quality, yet also, I think as far as the increase by fans and observers", he said. 

"At the point when they perceive how a portion of these circumstances are being taken care of, I believe there's as yet a solid social association among clubs and their networks and I think (fans) anticipate a specific norm."
