The frustration is deep in Aue: After the 0-1 defeat on 34 Matchday at SV Darmstadt 98, the anger about various mistakes and the resulting slippage of the FC Erzgebirge on the Relegationsrang now suspects a resident city council fraud and wants referee Sören Bring Storks to justice.
“There is at least the initial suspicion of a fraud,” is the rationale of the non-party politician Tobias Andrä in the “MDR”. Not only before a regular court, but also in the German football league, the city council wants to make a complaint: “Of course I will also inform the responsible DFL.”
Storks (kicker score: 5.5) made two hair-raising mistakes in this basement duel: Firstly, Lilien defender Romain Bregerie scraped Calogero Rizzuto’s ball well behind the goal line (4), and the referee also decided against the penalty in the 31st minute the Auer, as he did not punish Felix Plattes eleven-figure handball.
Shortly before the game Tobias Kempe scored the decisive 1-0 for Darmstadt – the lilies were thus saved, the FC Erzgebirge Aue slipped to 16th place and is now required in the relegation.
Anger after a late defeat
Accordingly big was the disappointment, even the anger about the referee. Andrä is not the only disappointed supporters from the environment of the FC Erzgebirge, who echauffierte on the performance of the referee. Among other things, club boss Helge Leonhardt had harsh criticism of.
We finally have to show our edge and stand up for the tall gentlemen in Frankfurt and say it in a nutshell: this far and not one step further.
The chances of success of the complaint Anräs are likely to be unlikely – a fact that does not prevent the city council, however, from putting his intentions into action. In addition to the demand for harsh sanctions (“He has no more business in professional football”), the politician also wants to set a signal. For himself, the club and also for the East: “There is also no reason for us in the East to march through the world with a hunchback and a bowed head and let us offer everything,” says Andrä. “We finally have to show our edge and stand up to the tall gentlemen in Frankfurt and say it in no uncertain terms: this far and not one step further.”
