His behavior around Eintracht Frankfurt’s Europa League victory was anything but fine: Frankfurt’s mayor Peter Feldmann is heavily criticized. Now his own party is demanding his resignation.
Strange mayor: Constantly new, embarrassing gaffes by Frankfurt’s Lord Mayor Peter Feldmann: As the “Hessische Rundfunk” reports, the SPD man is said to have demanded when the European Cup winner Eintracht Frankfurt returned home that only he and the team were allowed to go to the Roman balcony. The security staff therefore prohibited Eintracht bosses Markus Krösche and Philip Holzer from entering the balcony. This ban initially also applied to coach Oliver Glasner.
Cup posse and disgusting saying: There was also confusion about Feldmann when the team arrived. The OB took the trophy out of Captain Sebastian Rode’s hand and preferred to carry it himself. Rode added: “It might have been better if he had taken something back.” Finale after Seville.
Call for resignation: The SPD party executive in Frankfurt is unanimously calling on Feldmann to resign immediately because of all this. “Sexism has no place in the SPD and we actively fight it,” the party said. And: “The dignity of the office, the reputation of the city and the ability of the magistrate to act require the resignation of the mayor.”
