The association complains about massive threats, the professionals complain that they want to make their dreams come true. In the debacle surrounding the “One Love” bandage, German football is losing its credibility and shows that others are always responsible for civil courage.
The most unpleasant thing is the collective tearfulness: The players shouldn’t have to pay for the anger about the now infamous “One Love” armband, criticizes ex-national player Toni Kroos. Joshua Kimmich complains that you are now being persuaded that you should not look forward to the World Cup. The head of communications and image at the German Football Association, Steffen Simon, emphasized several times that one was “massively disappointed” ourselves, but “massively threatened” by Fifa.
