Ghana international Adams Nuhu has lamented the absence of fans ahead of the German Bundesliga resumption.
The 2019/20 Bundesliga campaign was suspended two months ago due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The season now is set to resume this weekend, but fans will not be allowed in the stadiums.
Nuhu, who is on the books of Fortuna Dusseldorf, is looking forward to playing for his club again.
“It is very exciting to play again but one painful thing is that football is always better with fans,” Adams said on Goal.
“Playing behind closed doors will affect some of us because we have always played in front of our amazing fans.
“We are also battling relegation and we need our fans to cheer us up but we also have to understand the circumstances.”
The 24-year-old defender has played for Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim and Swiss giants Young Boys.
“It hasn’t been easy for me since I came from Switzerland to Hoffenheim. They bought me at a huge price, which I haven’t been able to repay them with a performance that I like,” Adams said.
“I got injured during my first few games and was out for two months and after returning, I wasn’t getting enough playing time so I decided to go on loan at Fortuna Dusseldorf in order to get more playing time but I got injured again.
“So, coming to Germany has been too hard for me in terms of injuries. It has not allowed me to play to the level I was in Switzerland but as time goes on, I know I will get my rhythm again and make it in the Bundesliga.”
