Around midnight, Aogo put a screenshot of a chat process in his story *, a message from ex-national goalkeeper Lehmann can be clearly seen. "Is Dennis actually your quota black?" Is the message that Lehmann - probably accidentally - sent to the former Schalke and HSV professional. "WOW, are you serious? The message was probably not meant for me !!! ", the stunned Aogo writes.

This was immediately followed by a wave of indignation on Twitter and Instagram *.

Lehmann, who is currently a member of the supervisory board at Hertha BSC, subsequently commented on Twitter and on

Bild

.

“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 writes on Twitter.

Jens Lehmann with explanations - not the first slip of the ex-keeper

As the 51-year-old told

Bild

, he had "already phoned Dennis and asked his forgiveness if my statement came across as disrespectful," said the ex-goalkeeper. “It wasn't meant that way at all, but positive. Because he is competent as a Sky expert and very strong in his demeanor. And that's why the quota has increased. That's what I wanted to say, but I was unhappy about it. Since the WhatsApp went out from my cell phone, I take responsibility for it. It was a private message, ”was Lehmann's half-baked reply.

The former BVB and Schalke keeper drew attention in the past with confused statements about Thomas Hitzlsperger's sexual preferences and crude flu comparisons in the coronavirus debate.

So now the Aogo scandal.

It remains unclear to whom the original message should actually be addressed.
