Jens Lehmann is currently heavily criticized.
The ex-national goalkeeper described Sky expert Dennis Aogo as "quota blacks".
That now has consequences.
Munich - The former national soccer goalkeeper Jens Lehmann threatens a lot of trouble after a WhatsApp * message he sent to Dennis Aogo.
"Is Dennis actually your rating black?" Was the message with a laughing smiley that Sky expert Aogo published on Instagram.
"WOW, are you serious?
The message was probably not meant for me !!! ", Aogo wrote. *
Lehmann meanwhile apologized to Aogo.
“In a private message from my cell phone to Dennis Aogo, an impression was created for which I apologized in conversation with Dennis.
As a former national player he is very knowledgeable and has a great presence and brings a quota to Sky, ”Lehmann tweeted.

For whom Lehmann's report was intended is still unclear. Lehmann sits as a representative of investor Lars Windhorst on the supervisory board of the Bundesliga soccer club Hertha BSC. As the Bild newspaper now also reports, the ex-national player is losing his position at the capital club. “The consultant contract with Mr. Lehmann will be terminated. This means that there is no longer any posting to Hertha's supervisory board, ”Andreas Fritzenkötter, spokesman for the tenor group of Hertha investor Lars Windhorst, is quoted as saying.
