Bundesliga professional Klaus Gjasula calls for helmet duty in football
Petr Cech wears one, Paderborn's Klaus Gjasula as well: more and more footballers are wearing head protection. In an interview, the professional of the Bundesliga riser SC is now strong for a helmet duty in German football.
Midfielder Klaus Gjasula of the football Bundesliga club SC Paderborn can imagine a helmet requirement in German professional football. "I think it would make sense if all players would wear a helmet," said the 29-year-old in an interview with "t-online.de". "That might look weird on the pitch, but it would definitely be good for everyone's health," says Gjasula, who has been wearing headgear since a broken arch in 2013.
Klaus Gjasula wants head protection in professional football
The helmet simply gives him the feeling that nothing can happen, says Gjasula, whose headgear has earned the nickname "Spartacus" among his fellow players. Gjasula also believes that this will require a lot of persuasion. "If someone has nothing, he thinks: 'Is he crazy, that recommends me, I'm still healthy.' Man does not act on it until it has already happened, "says Gjasula.
He personally does not care about the look, he prefers to play football a bit weird and be healthy even after football, Gjasula said.
