This should be the case: Three men who were sitting near the journalist, Manchester City Sané, have again been repeated as a "Negro". There was mention of Gtendogan as “the Turk” and “pseudo-Turkish” was spoken when the 28-year-old was caught. The attacks cannot be seen in the video, this was only recorded after the match.
His Facebook videos Voigt recounts, among other things, that he put the men in the second half to the lecture. "Levels of alcohol are getting worse," said Vogt. From other viewers, he had received no support. It is said that a neighbor has seats even on the men to re-affirm. Just before he broke off the video, he calls for more community confidence: "If you need something, say something."
