DFB candidate Groth for tougher judgment against Tonnies

Presidential candidate Ute Groth hopes for a tougher sanction of Schalke’s Chief Supervisor Clemens Tonnies before the DFB Ethics Commission meeting.

“This is not enough for me with three months of self-elected recess. There must be a clear sign of racism, otherwise we will never get rid of the subject,”said the 60-year-old of the”German Press Agency”.

The three-headed DFB Ethics Commission on Thursday deals with the racistly criticised statements of tones about Africans. The Honorary Council of FC Schalke 04 had ordered Tonnies, in agreement with the club manager, to take a three-month break.” I think that was a very friendly verdict that the Schalker honored. The statement of tones must have consequences,”asked Groth.

The DFB Ethics Commission itself cannot make a judgment. It may, however, bring an action before the Court of Justice of the German Football Association. Tonnies had spoken out against tax increases in the fight against climate change. Instead, it is better to fund 20-power plants in Africa every year.” Then the Africans would stop chopping down trees, and they would stop when it is dark to produce children.”

Groth is chairman of DJK TuSA 06 Dusseldorf. She is running for DFB President with her own-initiative application, but has no support from the association and therefore no prospect of 27. To be elected at the DFB Bundestag in September.
