Former Ghana defender Hans Sarpei applies for Supervisory Board role at Schalke 04

Published on: 28 February 2020

Former Ghana defender Hans Adu Sarpei has applied for a top role at Schalke O4 in a bid to help fight racism in Germany. 

The ex-Black Stars and Schalke O4 player confirmed his candidacy for the Supervisory Board role as he bids to contribute to the success of the club.

"For a long time I have been concerned with how I can give something back to football and society, from which I have benefited as a professional athlete and a person with a migration background. It was clear to me at all times that my words must also be followed by concrete actions. That is why I am applying for the Supervisory Board of Schalke O4. Get together Schalke and fight Racism," he posted on Instagram.

Racism has become a problem is German football and few weeks ago Hertha Berlin defender Jordan Torunaraghia and Ghanaian player Leroy Kwadwo suffered racial abuse.

"I would very much like to contribute my experience in football as a German with a migration background. We have to get together for Schalke and fight Racism," Sarpei added.

"Schalke will always be bigger than any of us. Schalke was always strongest, even in my time with the miracle of Milan and the DFB Cup win, when we appeared as a team and fought for our ideals and values. I would like to build on this and with my candidacy for the supervisory Board of Schalke and make my contribution to a common and successful Schalke."

Seit längerem habe ich mich damit beschäftigt, wie ich dem Fußball und der Gesellschaft etwas zurückgeben kann, wovon ich selbst als Profisportler und Mensch mit Migrationshintergrund profitiert habe. Mir war dabei zu jedem Zeitpunkt klar, dass meinen Worten auch konkrete Taten folgen müssen. Deshalb bewerbe ich mich als Aufsichtsrat für den @s04. #GEmeinsam für Schalke und gegen Rassismus! @draxlerofficial @benwedes
