DAZN commentator Christian Scherpe dead – he prevailed in the casting against 500 competitors

Bunte.de

reports.

Scherpe became a commentator on DAZN through a casting.

He prevailed over 500 competitors in the DAZN x Indeed commentator drafts.

"Finally I can officially announce it.

I'm really looking forward to the new task!" he wrote on November 16 on Twitter full of anticipation.

Even after his first DAZN assignment, he recently wrote enthusiastically on January 7th: "It's still a little surreal when I think about the fact that I was allowed to make my debut on the microphone for DAZN last week.

At this point, a big thank you again to everyone who has supported me since I started more than four years ago!”
