It was an intense week for Thomas Kahlenberg in the beginning of march, when it emerged that the former midtbanemand for Brøndby had been infected with the coronavirus.
- It was utrygt.
- first, because I had it quite bad, but also because of the uncertainty there was about the whole thing. There wasn't really someone who knew what the hell it was for nothing, says Thomas Kahlenberg.
He was never in mortal danger, but he was a proper game of flu. Even he thinks it was perhaps for the best, when he looks back on it.
- It may be very well seen with the benefit of hindsight, that people could see that to someone like me - a former athlete, who still is in reasonably good shape and at a young age can also be affected, says Thomas Kahlenberg.
It might have gotten some people to understand how serious it really is, believe Kahlenberg.
the Situation was considered serious, because the Kahlenberg had been among the audience to several Brøndby-matches and a week before had participated in Christian poulsen's birthday in Amsterdam.
It got much attention in the media.
- There were many who called. But I talked not really any media about it, he says.
- I was in really close contact with the authorities. After all, we would identify all of them, I could have infected, says Thomas Kahlenberg.
Together with another former profile in denmark - Daniel Agger - is Kahlenberg behind an upcoming charity match for Brøndby. Football against the corona, called the fight.
the Fight is going to bid on the league and brøndbylegender as Kim Vilfort, John Faxe Jensen, Ebbe Sand and Stig Tøfting.
because of the uncertainty about when the public again allowed to come to football matches has not yet set a date for when the match should be played.
