Zero tolerance for incidents during Hertha match
FC Schalke 04 are taking the statements of Hertha BSC player, Jordan Torunarigha, regarding racist speech and noises directed at him during the DFB-Pokal match on Tuesday evening (4th February) very seriously. Together with the Gelsenkirchen police, security service and internal sources including for example the recently opened #stehtauf drop-in centre, the case is being reviewed in detail.
The FC Schalke 04 board reacted with clear words immediately after the final whistle: “There is zero tolerance from the club for such behaviour. We will do everything we can to make sure we identify those responsible and enforce the consequences. Such behaviour not only breaches the stadium regulations, the principles and rules of FC Schalke 04, it also goes against all our values. We will react with sanctions and report the incidents accordingly.”
