It is doubtful too many Premier League footballers would cope with the strict regime at Hertha Berlin, the capital city’s top-flight Bundesliga club. An offer for a couple of players to attend the 8pm deciding session of the Judd Trump vs Ding Junhui  final at the Tempodrom, following their early afternoon Sunday kick-off against Nuremberg, was politely declined with the response: “I am afraid it is forbidden for the players to go out after a match.” And this, without another game for a week. Based on past performance, a fair few English players would have been through a couple of bottles of Krystal before the break-off.
