This man has courage!
Union goalkeeper Rafal Gikiewicz (32) holds in the Berlin derby 1-0 against Hertha first cleaned his gate, then stops the fan-chasers who break into the lawn.
When, after the whistle of the Hertha block, the rockets in the direction of the Union fly, about 30 hooded ones climb the fence, apparently from the other side of the square until the block of the guests. Police and folders? Mistaken!
Suddenly Gikiewicz gets into the chaos and with the help of some colleagues (Lenz, Friedrich, Schlotterbeck, etc.) He brings them back to the stands. The song of the fans: "Gikiewicz, Gikiewicz!" Strong action of Poland!
Keven Schlotterbeck (22): "We wanted to reject them, it is useless in the square."
Already during the game there are always bad scenes in the stands. The Bengalis continue to burn on both sides. The rockets fly on the grass and in the stands. A bullet hits near the children of Unions Polter.
The attacker: "Terrible! My girlfriend then entered with the children, she saw the game in front of the TV".
A rocket almost hits the Union Bank and assistant coach Hoffmann. Fortunately, he will not be hurt. The referee Aytekin does the right thing and sends both teams to the stand.
The referee: "This has nothing to do with football, sad! In coordination with the police, we decided to finish the game."
After 3:23 minutes, the first Bundesliga derby of both teams will continue. Not much else happens on the field – up to the 84th minute!
