Lehmann served on the Hertha Supervisory Board as a representative of the investment group Lars Windhorst. A Windhorsr spokesperson later announced that Lehmann’s contract as a consultant with the Tennor Windhorst company had been terminated and thus also removed from the Hertha Supervisory Board.
Hertha president Werner Gegenbauer had earlier said that there was no place in the Berlin club for people proclaiming racism and subsequently celebrated Tennor Windhorst’s decision. “These types of positions do not correspond to the values defended by Hertha. Hertha distances itself from all forms of racism. That is why we celebrate the decision of the Tennor consortium “Geggenbauer said.
Windhorst has invested more than 300 million euros in Hertha through his company and his idea is that the club, which is currently fighting relegation, will become a regular in the Champions League.
