Martin Kind remains Managing Director at Hannover 96

Hannover 96 cannot depose Martin Kind as managing director. The district court in Hanover decided on Tuesday that the 78-year-old’s expulsion was void and therefore legally ineffective.

The club separated from the entrepreneur on July 27 “for important reasons”. It was initially unclear whether the Lower Saxony will now go to the higher regional court.

But the dispute in the management floor, which has been crippling the traditional club for years, is likely to continue. Even the presiding judge, Peter Carsten Schulze, pointed this out when the verdict was announced: “The situation is very muddled. We cannot solve Hannover 96’s problem.”

Because the German Football League (DFL) also took a very close look at the process with a view to the 50+1 rule. the Bild newspaper and the New Press Hanover quoted from a letter addressed to Kind by DFL legal advisor J├╝rgen Paepke.

In it, Paepke points out that the club’s “unrestricted right to issue instructions” to the management (child) “is an essential prerequisite for the legal and contractual structure of DFL GmbH to be considered compatible with the 50+1 rule”. .

As a result of Kind’s success in court, so the argument goes, the association is no longer authorized to issue directives. Then “the compatibility of the Hanover 96 contract with the 50+1 rule is clearly called into question, especially if the shareholders’ meeting cannot effectively enforce the right to issue instructions to a managing director who is bound by instructions,” the letter continues.

Therefore, the parent club, which was represented in court by the chairman of the supervisory board, Ralf Nestler, fears problems in the future with the granting of the playing license by the DFL.
