Addressing the DFB directly, he said: “As the highest institution in German football, we urge you to take a stand and take action.”
DnFB and Vice President Hannelor Ratzeberg also responded to the letter shortly after. “I can understand the anger of the players and the way they make their voices heard in public,” Ratzeberg wrote. He said the order to coach a women’s team as part of the punishment was incomprehensible.
