The promotion of Fortuna Düsseldorf to the Bundesliga has not been officially ratified. Hertha BSC has appealed to the DFB on the basis of the chaotic last minutes in overtime, when Fortuna fans stormed the field, thinking the game was over. That wanker Michael Preetz, the GM of Hertha, wants the game replayed. Apparently “Hertha players feared for their lives.” Well, Preetz certainly deserves some fear, since his incompetant management has certainly helped get Hertha to their chaotic state. In addition, the referee has announced he was attacked by various Berlin players and is threatening to sue. The DFB has apparently confirmed that they will punish the players. (Likely punishment is forcing them to extend their contracts another year with Hertha).
The DFB will issue a final ruling on Monday.
What a mess. Just another reason why the playoff is stupid and Hertha should have been relegated as the 3rd worst team.
