Steffen Baumgart: “It’s all about discrediting opinions”

Steffen Baumgart blames social media for the recurring discussions about allegedly missing types in football. “There are enough types, I’ll just name Christian Streich and Urs Fischer. We have a completely different problem. If someone has a clear opinion today, it’s often no longer about dealing with it, it’s just about discrediting this opinion,” said the coach of the Bundesliga soccer club 1. FC Köln in an interview with the Editorial Network Germany.

“There is falsified, anonymously insulted and mobbed on the net. But then you shouldn’t be surprised if the much-vaunted guys are getting quieter and no longer want to expose themselves to such attacks,” said 50-year-old Baumgart. (dpa)
