Schalke condemns distasteful fan banner

During Saturday's (27.04) derby win in Dortmund, a distasteful fan banner was displayed in the Schalke block. The board of FC Schalke 04 would like to make the following statement:


“During yesterday’s match, a small section of Schalke fans displayed a banner – as they did in the reverse fixture – making fun of the 2017 bomb attack on the Borussia Dortmund team bus. As a reminder: we are referring to cowardly attempt to murder people, in which fortunately there were no deaths. We are stunned by this distasteful display and have already apologised to Borussia Dortmund. Rivalry belongs to the Revierderby, as does respect. We expect such derogatory verbal attacks to stop moving forward. There is no place for this at FC Schalke 04.”
