DISGRACE!! Star Footballer Apologises For Pushing Fan In The Stands

Hamburg player Toni Leistner has apologised after climbing into the stands and grabbing a Dynamo Dresden fan after his side’s 4-1 defeat in the German Cup on Monday.

Leistner, who was born in Dresden and played for Dynamo from 2010 to 2014, was due to give an interview to Sky in Germany reporter Jurek Rohrberg after Hamburg crashed out of the DFB Pokal in the first round.

But he climbed into the stands to confront a section of the Dynamo fans, grabbing one of them by the shirt collar and pushing him into the ground after hearing verbal abuse and taunts directed at his family.

The former Queens Park Rangers defender was then pushed away by fans and forced to leave the stand by stewards.

He then resumed his interview looking extremely irritated and later released a statement on his Instagram account, claiming what he heard was “massively below the belt”, but apologising unreservedly for his actions.

“I received some massive insults from the stands in my hometown after the game,” he said.

“Usually, I can handle that but then it went below the belt against my family, my wife and my daughter. At that moment my fuse blew especially as this was already an extremely emotional game for me.
