Hoffenheim owner Dietmar Hopp insists he doesn’t even really know what the “idiots” protesting against him actually want.

Yesterday’s match between the two Bayern Munich and Hoffenheim ended with 10 minutes of the two sides simply passing the ball around.

The move was in protest by the players against an abusive banner being held up by the visiting Bayern fans against Hoffenheim owner Hopp.

Following the debacle that took place between the two Bundesliga sides, Hoffenheim owner Dietmar Hopp has hit out at protestors.

In an interview with Sport1, the billionaire businessman has no clue what he has done to offend these people so badly.

Hopp does not have the time of day for such individuals, and will not be bullied by what he deems concerning behavior.

He said:

“If I remotely knew what these idiots wanted from me, it would be all the easier for me to understand.”

“I can’t explain why they are so hostile towards me. It reminds me of very dark times.”

“I don’t want to talk to these people.”

” It’s pointless. They live in another world.”

“I don’t want to and I can’t talk to them, not at all. I don’t know what to say to them.”

“Why shouldn’t I go to the stadium anymore?”

“The people who do this are the ones who should stay away.”
