Nuremberg – Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder has warned of the consequences of such actions in the coronavirus pandemic after the controversial appearance of ex-world champion Thomas Berthold. “If even former national footballers join in absurd discussions, it also has a very devastating effect. What effect does it have on football fans when former national footballers suddenly call on people not to not wear masks or keep their distance? ” the CSU politician in Nuremberg said on Monday.
Söder did not name former professional footballer Berthold. Berthold, 55, gave a speech on Saturday at a protest against corona protection measures in Stuttgart. Berthold would like this appearance not to be the last in this context.
