Berlin (AFP) – Bayern Munich players Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich on Friday announced that they had launched a programme to help fight the coronavirus and had put in the first 1 million euro. 

“Germany is a at a standstill,” the two 25-year-olds wrote on their platform “WeKickCorona.com”. 

“As professional footballers we lead a healthy and privileged life. In these difficult times, we feel it is our duty to take responsibility.” 

They are appealing for donations to feed a fund, which can be called upon by charitable or medical institutions involved in the fight against the pandemic. 

“We are aware,” the German international midfielders add, “that our commitment is only a small contribution.
