Most hated team in Germany
Most hated team in Germany
In Germany all hate RB "Leipzig". The team that is among the newcomers in the Bundesliga this season, is hated and anathematized by fans of opposing teams. The reason - the millions of euros that the company's energy drink "Red Bull" poured in club seven years ago game in the fifth level of German football. Then he said "Markanshtad" and today is only the short RB. This is because German laws do not allow football team named after the company. However, the club is a loophole for this problem and have taken the initials of "Red Bull" - "RB" and in the football federation official name of the team is "Razel Balshport."
In 2009, manufacturers of the Austrian energy drink "Red Bull" buy license team from Leipzig and give wings with gradual investment of 100 mln. Euros.

In 2014, "RB" enters the second division. Before transfer in the team is the star of "Leicester" Jamie Vardi. The management team of Saxony is rolled take striker, but days later refused the deal because the player is too old ... - then 27 years old. In another coincidence Nedelev and Vardi could become club members. In his first season in the second division team is fifth, but the next second is one of the goals achieved - entry into the elite of German football.
But all the way to the Bundesliga roses. Experts frown club because good image of football in Germany is threatened by marketing strategy. Fans of opposing teams meet new club knife.

Fans of "iron" of Berlin kept silent for 15 minutes and were dressed in black nylons. After quarter of an hour elapsed, they raised their banner "Football culture in Leipzig dies."
In control of the Bundesliga newcomer immediately before the start of this season were supporters poured screws and hay in two box before checking with amateur "Frankfurt Oder".
Severed head of a bull again was thrown from the fans of "Dynamo" (Dresden) during the match with the team from Leipzig from the first round of the German Cup. It cloven-hoofed animals shines the logo of "Red Bull" ( "Bull" in English means Bull bull - author).
At the start of the season in the Bundesliga attacked newcomer they were made by another team, which was modeled RB - "Hoffenheim." Supporters of the "blue" crucified inscription "We want back the throne:" The most hated club in Germany. "
In the second round of the championship, "Red Bull Arena" visited one of the most popular German teams - "Borussia" (Dortmund). Fans staged a protest and refused to visit the former "Tsentralshtadion" although it meant to deprive players of Thomas Tuhel of their support. The management of "Borussia" even refused to provide the novice license logo for making general scarf to match.
In the newly formed club does not give a damn. The team won four promotions for seven years, and the goal is the club ... championship. Leipzig had a champion in the Bundesliga than a century. The last representative of the East German city raised the trophy in the football championship of the country's self-titled "Leipzig" triumphed in 1913. One hundred and three years later on the horizon is an unexpected contender for glory. After the sixth round in Germany "Razel Balshport" or by RB Leipzig, unbeaten and has 12 points after three wins and three draws. And if energy drinks give wings, the money world, to which can be reached only by flying.
