There were unsightly scenes in the third division in Germany. At the game between MSV Duisburg and VfL Osnabrück, according to Osnabrück, VfL professional Aaron Opoku was racially insulted by the spectators. The game was abandoned in the 33rd minute. At that point it was 0-0. But the result was of minor importance that day. The perpetrator has since been investigated and is in police custody. The suspect is a Duisburg trailer (55).
It is the first time that a game in German professional football has been canceled due to racist incidents. In the meantime, the control committee of the German Football Association (DFB) has started investigations into the verbal attacks. The DFB sports court decides how the game is ultimately rated. Osnabrück’s goalkeeping coach Rolf Meyer told “Sport1” that Opoku cried in the dressing room after this incident.
