Jochen Schneider: Football becomes insignificant at a time like this
The 1-1 draw between Wolfsburg and Schalke on Wednesday evening (18/12) wasn’t the most important for those involved after the game. This was due to the fact that a 41-year-old Schalke fan collapsed on the way to the ground and later died in hospital, according to the police.
Head coach David Wagner was also reluctant to discuss the game. “All our thoughts are with those affected by tonight’s events. Tonight has shown us that football isn’t the most important thing in the world,” stressed the 48-year-old at the post-match press conference.
