Germany: Borussia Mönchengladbach vs. FC Köln. 06.02.2021
FC Köln player Dominick Drexler, the night before the derby game, called his own fans idiots.
The situation took place when hundreds of FC Köln supporters came with flares and pyrotechnics to support their team for the last time before the derby with Borussia M’gladbach. Then, inside the bus, Dominick Drexler said, “Haha, what idiots.” Drexler had bad luck, because everything was recorded and went online, and the reaction of the ultras was quick: “he must leave the club immediately”.
Even FC Köln legend Lukas Podolski commented this situation on his twitter: “If you call your fans idiots, you don’t deserve this jersey.”
Dominick Drexler, 4 days after the derby match (which FC Köln won 2:1), came to training ground in a special t-shirt with the words: “Only an idiot calls other people idiots” and “Sorry!”
After this, again Lukasz Podolski wrote on his twitter: “End of the topic”
