Criticism: Hamburg's interior senator Grote: FIFA becomes an oppressor

Hamburg's interior and sports senator Andy Grote (SPD) has praised the possible course of the German Football Association (DFB) because of the "One Love" bandage banned by FIFA before the international sports court CAS: "Football must always give room for the transport of attitudes and values, that is inherent in sport," said the politician on Tuesday in Hamburg.

Criticism: Hamburg's interior senator Grote: FIFA becomes an oppressor

Hamburg's interior and sports senator Andy Grote (SPD) has praised the possible course of the German Football Association (DFB) because of the "One Love" bandage banned by FIFA before the international sports court CAS: "Football must always give room for the transport of attitudes and values, that is inherent in sport," said the politician on Tuesday in Hamburg.

The problem is not the national team, but FIFA. Grote: "This FIFA, with its attitude and its methods, is completely out of date. It's escalating here in a way during an ongoing World Cup conflicts with the European associations, that's unprecedented. With the World Cup, FIFA is a guest in one oppressor country and becomes an oppressor himself."

The "Bild" had reported that the DFB would examine the possibility of an application for provisional legal protection at the ad hoc division of the CAS. The Hamburg Interior Senator thinks this is the right approach: "And I'm sure that the team will come up with something as the tournament progresses to make their own point of view clear in other ways." The world football association had banned seven European World Cup participants from wearing the multicolored "One Love" captain's armband on Monday.
