Hamburger SV: Bakery Jatta confirmed "the correctness of his passport information"
The Hamburger SV has promised his player Bakery Jatta support and complains that this is "partially a social garbage run" exposed. "We are fully behind Bakéry and will continue to fully plan him in the training and gaming operations, especially since he is a valuable player and fully integrated, valued teammate," HSV sports director Jonas Boldt is quoted in a club statement.
Jatta has for three years a valid passport and a license for the football second division. "For us it is unacceptable that this eligibility is challenged on the basis of assumptions," it said in Boldt's statement, it was also said: "Baka has confirmed to us again the correctness of his passport information."
According to a report of the "Sport Bild" there should be doubts about Jatta's identity, which is under contract to HSV until mid-2024. His residency permit, which was only extended in May, runs until 2022. Jatta did not comment in the statement on Thursday.
Boldt is surprised about Nuremberg's objection to the game classification
The competent authority and the German Football Association (DFB) examine the question of the identity of Jatta, who had come from Gambia to Germany in 2015. The "Sport Bild" posed the question of whether Jatta, with a false identity, could possibly gain advantages in an asylum procedure in Germany. According to the report, he should actually be called Bakary Daffeh and not 21, but 23 years old. (Read more about the case Bakery Jatta here)

FC Nuremberg against the rating of the Hamburg 4-0 victory "very surprised" and will "of course as required to take position against the DFB and the DFL We expect in return from League and Association a clear and fastest possible positioning, as regards the eligibility of Bakery Jatta, so that a legally secure process of the cup and league games competition is maintained.
