Jens Lehmann removed from Hertha Berlin’s advisory commitee
The move comes after Lehmann’s racist remarks he made for a TV pundit.
Jens Lehmann has been excused from the administrative leading group of Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin in the wake of making a bigoted comment about a TV presenter’s race.
Lehmann is part of the Hertha Berlin administrative board as a consultant to the club’s significant investor Lars Windhorst, manager of Tennor Holding.
“We have ended the consultancy contract with Jens Lehmann.”
“This additionally closes his movement on the administrative leading group of Hertha Berlin,” a Tennor Holding representative disclosed.
Hertha Berlin president Werner Gegenbauer invited the club’s choice.
“Hertha Berlin distances itself from any type of bigotry. We, hence, welcome the step taken by Tennor Holding,” he said.
Hertha accidentally sent a WhatsApp text to Germany defender Dennis Aogo, whose father is of Nigerian descent.
Dennis Aogo took a screenshot of the message that read, “Is Dennis actually your token black guy?” and posted it on social media with the caption “WOW, are you serious?
