The Minister of Labour in Austria is considering a mask requirement for football to return in the country.

This is expected to guarantee the safety of the players amid coronavirus pandemic.

Red Bull Salzburg returned to training this week with Ghana youth international Majeed Ashimeru spotted wearing a face mask.

Samuel Tetteh also returned to training with his Austrian Bundesliga side LASK Linz.

In Germany, the Bundesliga has been warned that playing games behind closed doors could pose a public health risk because fans will gather in front of stadiums.

The authorities are looking for a way to resume the 2019-20 campaign despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
