Adrian Fein — Hamburg — 2.Bundesliga
With their third straight 2.Bundesliga win, Hamburg remain at the top of the table. Fein again played the full 90 minutes as a the loan defensive midfielder for Hamburg. In this match, he even completed the most passes of either team (59) with a 91% pass completion rate. He’s continuing to shine, and this is precisely the kind of loan Bayern wants for any loaned player.
This marks the third straight opponent for Hamburg to file an appeal after the match. The opponents are arguing that Hamburg midfielder Bakery Jatta, who was a refugee to Germany, is not who he says he is. A tabloid reported a month or so ago that Jatta is not his real name and he is two years older than he claims. Hamburg has vociferously backed the young player and offered a very simple defense: The German state approved his paperwork, and the DFB and DFL gave him the green light to play. It’s time for the DFB/DFL to speak up now.
