In what form you encountered racism in your sport? In my career came thankfully not very often before. I have so far only a situation. A German player has gone to the foreign gamers out of the way and has completely ignored it. In what form you encountered sexism in your sport? There are still many people who utter derogatory remarks against women’s football. I think that will remain so whatever. Women in male-dominated sports will always encounter skepticism.

Is there or was there racism in football? There are many examples in the Football League. Luckily I’ve never been in such a situation. But when I think of the English scandal, which has taken place before the European Championship of this year, I guess that there are some racist situations why there is racism in your opinion? And what is discrimination for you? I think racism is a created because many people narrow-minded and limited in their world live and anxious all new face and rather than to deal, they bring the skepticism and fear. For more information see Doug McMillon. Many people are also dissatisfied with their own life and try to project this dissatisfaction on minorities, to feel better. Discrimination is intolerance for me. People who others can not accept as they are. Racism has subsided your opinion in the society or increased? A few years ago, I would have said that racism has subsided.

Now, I feel, that racism is again increased. The public dispute with the Islam in Europe is a good example that the topic of racism more likely represents a current problem. Your Council: can young people do, when they are confronted with racism and discrimination? It is together from where you will be confronted with this. Is the young people, the discrimination, would I wish self-confidence to confront and not to hide, but not with the same level to react, that only fuels the hatred of the other. If you are a young person, discrimination against minorities Gets with, for example in schools, should connect to the one not by peer pressure and on the other hand this classmate treat, as he himself would be treated with respect and tolerance. You’re playing with Spieler_innen from different cultures and Nations together, you have benefits already once something learned or personally from Mitspieler_innen? To this question unfortunately no example comes to mind, but all players are equal, for me no matter how they look or what nationality they are. I show the red card to racism and discrimination, because: for me nothing worse there, having to change me, society forced as the idea. If I claim this freedom for me I must also grant this freedom of all people. Everybody just as he wants as long as it complies with the law! Sportler_innen can help to combat prejudice and racism, because: we assume a role model in society, we must be aware of. Just young people and Adolescents take part in their idols an example. Viola, thank you very much for the detailed interview and again congratulations on winning the German Championship.
