thumbnail Hello,

Bayer Leverkusen goalie Rene Adler has hit out at the German FA for not doing enough to protect players after Robert Enke's tragic death.

Days before the first anniversary of Robert Enke's tragic suicide, fellow goalkeeper and German international Rene Adler has made an emotional outburst towards the DFB, criticising the association for not showing enough concern for the welfare of professional footballers.

"After the tragic death of Robert Enke, there has been a lot of hot air but nothing has changed," he told

"Weakness has no place as a footballer for the fans. The player who is the Messiah one day can be the arch enemy three days later."

"There is only black and white and no grey area in between."

Former Hannover, Barcelona and Benfica goalkeeper Enke was found dead almost a year ago after committing suicide at a railway line. His death will be marked this coming Wednesday with a memorial march organised by the club's supporters.
