Munich – FC Bayern Munich are engaged in an internal investigation into allegations of racism against an employee of the German football champions’ youth performance center. This was confirmed by the Association of the German News Agency.
This is alleged chat content in a WhatsApp group within the youth department, which was made public last week via a Twitter account with the employee’s name. The club called the account a “fake account” at the request of WDR. The association checks the veracity of the news, as we have learned.
WDR Sport Inside magazine reported suspicions of racism on the Bayern campus on Tuesday. As a result, serious allegations would be raised against a club employee who has long been active as a coach in the youth department. The employee allegedly used racist expressions when discussing player obligation.
The bottom magazine claims to have discussion stories and anonymous letters. He also cites discussions. In the letters, which may have come from parents of young players and which have been addressed to the top of the club, allegations are also made against the Bayern employee. FC Bayern do not want to make an official statement at the moment as they are currently working on the case, as has been said on request.
