Bundesliga member Hertha Berlin fired Hungarian goalkeeper Zsolt Petry on Tuesday in recognition of his “Rainbow Campaign” against the Bundesliga. Péter Gulácsi said about this. A statement on the issue and views on the immigration crisis. Herta said that he could not do this because the club’s official opinions differed.
The club’s announcement proved the reason for the 54-year-old expert’s expulsion through an interview published on Magyar Nemzet, which was carried out without Hertha’s consent.
As they wrote, Hertha had previously signed the “Diversity Charter”, and Petrie’s statement violated “the club’s promised and professed values”.
“We have always recognized Zsolt Petry’s work during Hertha. We met an experienced, open, tolerant and helpful person who has never shown a homosexual or xenophobic attitude.” Contained in “Comments” The head of the club, Carsten Schmidt, wrote that Petri’s words appeared in Hungarian newspapers without the club’s consent, which is inconsistent with Hertha’s values.
Zsolt Petry read: “I want to point out that I am neither homosexual nor xenophobic. I am very sorry for my views on immigration policy. I hope you all go well in the club in the future!”- Former Hungarian national team expert.
The dismissal of Zsolt Petry was shocking because he did not criticize Péter Gulácsi’s views in his speech. In fact, he said he had the right to express his opinions. What he said is only in his own position, he is not talking about the things that divide the fans. Petrie’s words:
As national representatives, we hope that the other party will listen to our position. Most Hungarian society disagrees with Péter Gulácsi’s liberal views on rainbow families. This is why many people start to criticize him, even if his expression is not morally offensive. Everything he does is to stick to his principles. In principle, he cannot and should not be condemned just because he has expressed an opinion. Another question is whether people agree with his position. As an athlete, I will focus on football instead of formulating any position on public and social policy issues. I will do what my club and the Hungarian national team expect me to do. Public opinion expresses opinions on social issues. Athletes, probably Péter Gulácsi, are loved by people because they defend themselves bravely or by penalty kicks, and use the Hungarian shield to provide a sensational performance at the gate. . There is absolutely no need to recruit the enemy in a single form of political expression, especially for the first-class goalkeepers in Europe. But I don’t know what caused Peter to stand up against people with homosexuality, transvestite and other gender identities. I will certainly not irritate his position.
