Shechter faces German anti-Semitism
The Jerusalem Post
Kaiserslautern spokesman Christian Gruber says around five fans, of over 100 in attendance, chanted anti-Semitic slogans
Israel striker Itay Shechter was the target of Nazi salutes from fans of his own team Kaiserslautern during the German club’s training session on Sunday.
Kaiserslautern spokesman Christian Gruber said on Monday that around five fans, of over 100 in attendance, chanted anti-Semitic slogans while attending the session, a day after the struggling side suffered a 4-0 Bundesliga defeat at Mainz.
Shechter did not notice the incident, but Kaiserslautern informed the police and is looking for witnesses.
“There is no place for racism at Kaiserslautern. We will make sure that these guys are punished,” Kaiserslautern president Stefan Kuntz said.
“They are members of the hooligan scene who have been previously convicted and serve stadium bans,” Gruber added.
