Jens Lehmann is involved in a racism storm in Germany after he accidentally wrote to Sky Sports expert Dennis Aogo and asked if he was the company’s “Token Black Guy”.
The legend of Germany and Arsenal, Lehmann, who is now a TV expert himself, was released from his role on the board of Hertha Berlin after Aogo posted a screenshot of the text on Instagram.
In a message incorrectly sent to Aogo, Lehmann says – literally translated: “Is Dennis really your” black “one?” And follows him with a laughing emoji.
Dennis Aogo posted a screenshot of a message Jens Lehmann sent him on WhatsApp
TV expert Lehmann, who has become a footballer, has since been dismissed from the Hertha Berlin board
Lehmann has since apologized to Twitter for the message he sent to Aogo on WhatsApp
Shortly thereafter, Aogo posted a screenshot of his Instagram story next to the headline: “WOW … The message was probably not meant for me !!!”
Lehmann sent his WhatsApp shortly after Aogo went out of the air after punditry for the German TV channel Sky Sport for the Champions League win in Manchester City against PSG.
He will now face numerous setbacks as fans urge various companies to cut ties with the 51-year-old and Hertha Berlin are the first to distance themselves from the ex-goalkeeper.
Aogo, who plays for Stuttgart in 2019, has 12 international matches for the German national team

‘The consulting contract with Mr. Lehmann is terminated. This eliminates the posting to the Hertha supervisory board, “said spokesman Andreas Fritzenkötter from Tennor Holding to Sky, while a statement added:” Hertha BSC distances itself from racism. “
Since then, Lehmann has apologized publicly and privately to Aogo and posted on his Twitter account: “A private message from my cell phone to Dennis Aogo created an impression for which I apologized in conversation with Dennis.
“As a former national player he is very competent and has a large presence and brings opportunities at Sky.”
