Bakery Jatta: Bochum also lodges a protest against the game classification



Even second-division football team VfL Bochum has lodged with the German Football Association (DFB) protest against the classification of last Friday evening 0: 1 lost league game at Hamburger SV.

"The objection is in view of the still unresolved situation to the eligibility of the HSV player Bakery Jatta, as it is from the media reports," said the VfL announced.

A report by the "Sport Bild" had cast doubt on the identity of the 21-year-old Gambian offensive player. Thus Jatta could have been known earlier under the name Bakary Daffeh. He could also be two and a half years older than previously thought.

Determine DFB and district office Hamburg-Mitte

The responsible DFB sports court will write to the HSV and ask for an opinion on the allegations, the association said. The panel will then decide on the appeal in due course.

"The VfL has lodged an objection to the game evaluation of the game at HSV to meet the deadline and in the exercise of its responsibility for the team and the club's good", wrote the Bochum.

The DFB Control Committee and the Hamburg-Mitte district office have started investigations in this case. Last week, the DFB control committee had listened to Jatta and validated his eligibility to play.

Also the 1. FC Nuremberg had lodged an appeal against the 0: 4 lost home game against HSV because of Jatta, because Jatta's right to play under the circumstances of a possible identity falsification was ineffective.
