Bremen She moved a few weeks into the country after the vaccination scandal surrounding Marcus Anfang. Now the former trainer from Werder Bremen has admitted the false vaccination certificate through his lawyer.
Marcus Anfang, the former Bremen coach, has admitted to falsifying his vaccination certificate.
“The lawyer commented on the accusation and admitted the allegation,” said a spokesman for the public prosecutor’s office in Bremen, Frank Bassad. Previously, “Deichstube” and “Bild” reported this.
At the beginning of November, a few hours before the match at home against FC Schalke 04 (1:1), Werder Bremen coach resigned. The Public Prosecution had previously learned that he was being investigated because of a false vaccination card.
The Prosecutor’s Office has not commented specifically on how the vaccination certificate was initially forged or possibly forged itself. “He has made an announcement about the origin,” Basad said of the “photo”.
Increased pressure as a vulnerable person
According to information from the “Deichstube” portal, the 47-year-old is said to have admitted the allegation to the prosecutor’s office in December. As a reason for his misbehavior, he is said to have given the increasing pressure, which became bigger and bigger for him as an invulnerable person.
From a legal point of view, it would be possible to visualize the decision using the so-called penalty order path. “It’s still hypothetical, but it’s very close,” Bassad said. The Prosecutor’s Office will propose a fine to the court, and if the court accepts it, the penalty note will be issued with a fine initially.
After the initial admission, there is much to suggest that the former coach will have to pay a fine and that there will be no major hearing. The starter should have a keen interest in avoiding a court hearing that gets so much media attention.
Former coach of Holstein Kiel, 1. FC Köln and Darmstadt 98 only came to Weser from Darmstadt in the summer and should start rebuilding the green team after their first relegation in 41 years – and North Germany as straight forward as possible in a return to the Bundesliga.
With his resignation and the media attention generated by the investigation, the start caused quite a stir in Weser. After his departure, interim coach Daniel Zinkowicz was on the bench in the 1-1 draw against Schalke 04. A positive coronavirus test confirmed that U19 coach Christian Brand had to intervene after a 2-1 defeat in Kiel before Ole Werner was introduced as the new coach at the end of November.
