Den tidigare målvaktsstjärnan Jens Lehmann får sparken från sitt styrelseuppdrag i tyska fotbollsklubben Hertha Berlin efter ett rasistiskt meddelande.

Jens Lehmann skickade ett meddelande, som ska ha varit menat till någon annan, till den tidigare tyska landslagsbacken Dennis Aogo.

Han skrev det i samband med att Aogo medverkade som expert i tysk tv under tisdagens Champions League-semifinal mellan Paris Saint-Germain och Manchester City. Lehmann skrev, fritt översatt: "Är Dennis egentligen er inkvoterade svarta person?" varpå Aogo tog en skärmdump och lade ut det på Instagram med texten "Wow, menar du allvar?".
