Hinteregger: “Media hunt against me”
Eintracht defender Martin Hinteregger has spoken in detail Sky-Interview also commented on the scandal surrounding connections to the alleged Identitarian supporter Heinrich Sickl: “I knew nothing of his views. If someone had warned me beforehand, I would of course have reacted differently,” said Hinteregger. At first he thought the media reports about Sickl and him were a joke. “Only on the second day did I realize that it was serious and I was a little sad,” says Hinteregger. He argued that he had four companies and therefore could not know everything about all of his business partners. “Anyone who has common sense knows that everything that happened there was just nonsense in the truest sense of the word. There was a media hunt and I was the focus of it,” said the 29-year-old.
