BVB is on cloud nine after reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League. Only one scene clouds the picture and provokes indignation. But now the situation has become clear.

After the 4-2 win over Atlético Madrid, BVB professional Julian Brandt obviously wanted to hand his shirt to a wheelchair user on Tuesday evening (April 16, 2024). But a person who was right next to it snatched it from the recipient, was visibly happy and walked away.

Update, 11:15 am: It is now clear: the person was the wheelchair user's girlfriend. The fan in a wheelchair who was supposed to receive the shirt and the young woman who took it are a couple.

The fan in a wheelchair said via “Image” : “This woman has been my friend for eleven years. She only took the shirt because Julian Brandt didn't come over. “It was a beautiful moment for us.”

Brandt wants to give his t-shirt to a wheelchair user; his girlfriend accepts him

A companion of the wheelchair user briefly followed the man and attempted, apparently unsuccessfully, to retrieve the shirt, as shown in a video from the live broadcast of main video you can see.

The incident occurred in an area of ​​the Westfalenstadion specially designed for people with disabilities. Therefore, it was initially unclear whether the person involved was also a person with a disability, who might not have been able to assess the scope of the action. But he could also have been a companion. This was also the subject of heated debates online.

“Sad for such a good game,” wrote one fan and posted the video on X:

But there is a happy ending for the wheelchair user. BVB professional Marius Wolf (28) spoke about X and wrote: “It will become clear.”

The former 1. FC Köln professional was praised by the fans. “Man of honor” and “Top boy” were just two of the many glowing comments about X.

The BVB is investigating the case and trying to locate the wheelchair user and compensate him with a new BVB jersey. (dpa)
