Emre Can steps in to calm Dortmund supporters as their Bundesliga match vs Freiburg is suspended for 10 minutes amid fan unrest… as ‘tennis balls and coins’ are thrown onto the pitch
Borussia Dortmund’s Bundesliga clash against Freiburg was suspended for ten minutes on Friday night amid fan unrest over proposals for a new commercial deal to be implemented at clubs across Germany.
Former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can was seen confronting supporters in the first half in an attempt to calm unrest among the supporters.
Supporters expressed their displeasure at the new investment plans by reportedly throwing ‘tennis balls and coins’ onto the pitch.
The game was reportedly suspended for ten minutes during the first half, before the home team took a 2-0 lead in the game.
Donyell Malen gave the hosts a 1-0 lead after 17 minutes, hitting the ball into the top right corner of the goal after finding himself in plenty of space in the box. He hit back just before the break to score his second of the game and combined with Niclas Fullkrug to double their lead.
