1 Mins read

Jens Lehmann appeared to have sent a racist message to former German international and Sky Sports Germany pundit Dennis Aogo which read: “Is Dennis actually your Quotenschwarzer(token black guy)?”

Former Arsenal and Germany goalkeeper, Jens Lehmann has been sacked from Hertha Berlin’s supervisory board after referring to Sky Sports pundit Dennis Aogo as “a token black guy” in a WhatsApp message.

Lehmann appeared to have accidentally sent a message to former German international Dennis Aogo which read: “Is Dennis actually your Quotenschwarzer(token black guy)?”

Aogo posted a screenshot of the message on Instagram with the caption: “Wow, are you serious? This message was probably not meant for me.”

Lehmann was sacked by Hertha Berlin on Wednesday, May 5, in a statement released by the club’s president, Werner Gegenbauer, which read: “Such statements are in no way representative of the values that Hertha BSC stands for. We distance ourselves from all forms of racism and welcome the action taken by TENNOR Holding.”

The 51-year-old, who played for the Gunners from 2003-2008 as well as for a brief spell in 2011, and represented Germany 61 times, apologised on social media to Aogo, a former Hamburg and Schalke player who now works for Sky Sports in Germany.

“In a private message from my cell phone to Dennis Aogo, an impression was created for which I apologized in conversation with Dennis. As a former national player he is very knowledgeable and has a great presence and brings odds at Sky.”
