Frankfurt - In memory of Junior Malanda, a player for VfL Wolfsburg, who died in a tragic accident, German Football League (DFL) recommends holding a minute’s silence at all stadiums prior to the kick-off at the matches marking the commencement of the second half of the Bundesliga season from 30 January until 1 February. In addition, DFL will leave it to all clubs to decide at their discretion whether players may wear black arm bands.
