Skopje - In November last year, TV expert and ex-national player Steffen Freund attracted attention with several extremely confusing statements.

At that time, the former professional tried in the soccer talk "Doppelpass" to establish a connection between the misconduct of two former Schalke players and their French-Algerian descent.

Freund had to take a lot of criticism for this.

On Monday evening, the 51-year-old made another absolutely dispensable statement during the international match between Germany and North Macedonia (4-0), this time with regard to women.

Then there was renewed criticism.
