The social media department of DAZN is very used to headwinds. Most of the reactions from football fans revolve around the high subscription prices or the frequent disruptions in the transmissions. In the game between FC Barcelona and Cádiz, the department docked an own goal with an inappropriate post and even received a lot of criticism from Barca keeper ter Stegen.
Barcelona's 4-0 away win in Cádiz was a minor matter on Saturday. With the score 2-0, news of a medical emergency spread through the stands. Cádiz keeper Jeremias Ledesma reacted at lightning speed and ran to the substitution bench to get the defibrillator and sprinted back to the stands to hand it over. The goalkeeper was celebrated online for his important help.
The anger of the national goalkeeper is definitely understandable. After all, DAZN later apologized for the inappropriate post."We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate tweet about the match between Cadiz and Barca, which we have now deleted. We only saw and posted the goals and unfortunately we were not aware of the serious circumstances accompanied the game. We wish the person concerned a speedy recovery, "explained the sports platform. Perhaps the scene can be seen as a lesson for the future. A football game isn't always made up of goals. After all, the game was interrupted for a full 1:20 hours, which could have gotten wind of the events.
