Hatred was also directed at Jatta
DFB determined after the racism scandal in Hamburg
At the game Hamburger SV against Fortuna Düsseldorf, the former HSV professional Khaled Narey is racially insulted. The hatred is also directed against Bakery Jatta, who represents the colors of the home team. The HSV wants to clear up the incidents, the DFB has started investigations.
After the racism scandal at the game against Fortuna Düsseldorf, the control committee of the German Football Association (DFB) will initiate investigations against Hamburger SV. The association announced. At 1: 1 (1: 0) on Saturday evening, the former Hamburg-based Khaled Narey and Bakery Jatta were apparently racially insulted, and beer mugs were thrown from the stands.
Narey, who moved from HSV to Düsseldorf in the summer and was officially adopted before the game, made the hostility public. The attacker thanked all the viewers who “gave him a warm welcome” on Instagram: “But I sincerely wish all the ‘fans’ who racially insulted me during the game and throw beer at me, a speedy recovery.”
The HSV spoke of “unacceptable incidents”. The club stands “for diversity. Racism has no place in the Volksparkstadion, but also in our society. We do not only accept verbal derailments, but also the throwing of objects in the direction of the acting actors,” it said in a statement. The eighth of the table wants to “do everything possible to clear up and punish the incidents”.
on Twitter a user wrote in detail on Sunday about the experience. The behavior of the Hamburgers towards Narey was generally “toxic”, but in certain corners of the stadium it was not just whistling concerts and throwing cups. The player was said to have been covered several times by “fans” from a certain block with racist slogans and comparisons.
“I am not only shocked by the racist behavior itself, but also by the lack of support from the surrounding squares,” wrote the user. “Exactly one young man had my back and was threatened with violence.”
