03/15 in Germany D2: Hertha Berlin fans were quite unhappy at the start of the match between their favorite team and Brunswick on Sunday.
And their discontent was mainly directed towards the owners of the Bundesliga 2 club, 777 Partners, the American investment fund that also runs Standard, Genoa, Red Star, Vasco da Gama and soon Everton.
Relegated at the end of last season, the former club Dodi Lukebakio and Dedryck Boyata did not have an ideal start to the season: four defeats to a single victory in the first five days of the championship, that is too little for Berlin fans.
“Wander, insurance for football fans?” asked Hertha BSC fans on a banner placed at the start of the match. “Our investments are called identity and co-determination. Josh Wander, the only thing we can assure you is that we do not agree with you! We are against investors.“
“No money, no ambition“, “777: multiple properties or multiple mediocrities?“, “Your galaxy must not harm our future.“: these slogans, launched by Standard fans in the stands of Sclessin just over two weeks ago after a very difficult start to the season for Liégeois, found an echo a few hundred kilometers further away…
The Berlin fans were still able to have a good time in the stadium, as their team won 3-0 thanks to a hat-trick from Haris Tabakovic.
