There are disturbing video recordings that circulate in the network. About ten in yellow folders beating on some Gladbach fans, in boxer attitude they push them against a wall, fists fly, and in the end, a security man also brings out with the foot, although the affected person in defensive defensive posture with hands and Arms protectively standing in front of the face. Panic screams from other stadium visitors can be heard.
On Twitter, the “Fan Help Mönchengladbach” condemned the scenes as “absolutely disproportionate violence use of the VFB folders”. Next it was: “We will support the fans concerned with any criminal charges. From VFB Stuttgart, we demand an explanation of the incidents and clear distancing from the violent folders. These people are not in a folder vest, but in court.”

That must be worked up,” wrote the foals.
