Now the next football star is commenting on the case of Christoph Metzelder (40).
Together with his brother Felix, Real-Star Toni Kroos (31) criticized the verdict in the case of the former national player in the podcast “Einfach mal Luppen”. Kroos: “Many have expressed themselves and rightly are of the same opinion that it is disgusting to do something like that. There are hardly any words for it that can be said here. That makes one angry with such a judgment that something like this is even possible. “
Lukas Podolski (35), Kevin Kuranyi (39), Mario Götze (28) and Max Kruse (33) had already criticized the judgment in the child pornography trial around Metzelder. The verdict against the ex-national player only became final on Monday. Metzelder had been sentenced to ten months probation. Reason: He had confessed to owning child and youth pornographic files and forwarding them to three women.
Kroos: “He somehow gets out of court as a free man, suspended sentence or not and that’s just one thing that doesn’t work.”
For other potential perpetrators, this judgment is “zero deterrent”. Kroos: “I have no understanding for that.”
