The duo from Mali was withdrawn from circulation for three months by UEFA on Wednesday. “That is of course bitter for us, the two have an incredible amount of quality and potential. But we will make the best of it, we still have a lot of potential in the squad,” said midfielder Zlatko Junuzovic.
According to coach Jesse Marsch, a conversation with Koita and Camara on Saturday will determine how the two Africans will continue in the coming months. Since they are also not allowed to take part in the training, a home leave is likely to be on the program soon, but not for the entire duration of the ban.
The last Bundesliga round (32nd round) is on 21./22. May scheduled.
In theory, Koita and Camara could object to the ban through their legal representation. Whether this actually happened was unclear on Friday. Salzburg cannot take legal action against the judgment – the club has no party position in the proceedings.
