Fortuna Düsseldorf winger Kelvin Ofori looks lost in the empty Bundesliga stadium

Ghanaian winger and Fortuna Düsseldorf forward Kelvin Ofori is yet to come to terms with the new modalities of football following the return of the German Bundesliga.

The 18-year old was totally lost walking down an empty tunnel ahead of his side's game against SC Paderborn on Saturday.

Normally players arrive to the pitch with teammates, children and coaches but on Saturday, each player arrived individually with no one around.

This was part of the German Football League's new rules to minimize the threat of coronavirus which stalled football for two months.

Games in the German topflight are being played without fans and a maximum of only 322 people are allowed to enter the stadium, including team officials and journalists.

Ofori joined the Bundesliga outfit last summer and is relatively new to the system, having played just a single game.

His performances for the junior side impressed new manager Uwe Rosler who has kept the teenager in his match day squads since taking over.

Meanwhile, the unsed substitute watched as his side drew barren with relegation rivals SC Paderborn.
