    It’s an interesting development, that’s for sure. In fact, of course, this investor could have bought more than 49% of the club (indeed Hopp has much more at Hoffenheim), as long as that shareholding did not give him more than 50%, plus one vote, of the voting rights.

    However, I hope very much that the DFL will stand firm and maintain the 50+1 rule no matter how loudly Kind & co. cry “It’s not fair!”. Football belongs to the fans / club members and should not be exploited as a plaything by wealthy investors. If that means not winning the Champions League, so be it. It’s a small price to pay.
