Silas played with a false name and age: DFB announces penalty against Stuttgart professional

Stuttgart –

There has long been speculation about an allegedly false identity, recently Stuttgart player Silas Wamangituka (22) revealed himself to his employer. The lightning-fast winger from the Congo played under a false name and is actually exactly a year older than originally assumed. VfB Stuttgart reported on Tuesday (June 8, 2021) that Silas had become the victim of the windy machinations of his former players’ agent, from whom he has since separated. Three days later, the DFB announced the penalty for Silas.

  • The man from Stuttgart took an active part in the processing of the case

Over the past few weeks, Silas and his new advisor have been involved in clarifying the case. A few days ago he is said to have received official papers from the Congo.

VfB Stuttgart: Silas Katompa Mvumpa blocked by the DFB

Now the VfB professional wants to send his documents to the German authorities and clarify the matter. VfB Stuttgart was in contact with the DFL and DFB, but is sure of a valid license to play. The name Wamangituka is to be replaced by the real name Silas Katompa Mvumpa in his eligibility to play.

On Friday, the DFB announced the penalty for the arrow-fast attacker: Silas Katompa Mvumpa will be banned from all competitions for three months – until September 11, 2021 – and he will also have to pay a fine of 30,000 euros. The judgment is final, as Silas and the VfB accept the punishment.

VfB sporting director Sven Mislintat says: “That Silas is sanctioned by the DFB was clear to him and to us and according to the statutes it has to be that way. The judgment also takes into account the particular circumstances of the case. We are happy that the sports court aspect at DFB level is now closed for Silas. “

VfB Stuttgart: Old consultant probably wanted to cut ties with the Congo

According to VfB Stuttgart, Sila’s old advisor, who was responsible for the false identity, probably wanted to break contact with its training club in the Congo with this maneuver. There should have been no motives for residency law. From then on, Silas lived with his advisor and had neither access to his account nor to his papers.

VfB stands behind Katompa Mvumpa. Sports director Sven Mislintat (48) emphasizes that Silas remains the person and player “who has played his way into the hearts of our fans and his teammates since he was here in Stuttgart. In terms of the name change, he is above all a victim. We will protect him accordingly. I have great respect for the fact that at his young age he was almost on his own and without knowing the consequences he dared to take the step to clarify his situation. We will continue to help him in every way. “

VfB Stuttgart: Sven Mislintat and Thomas Hitzlsperger talk about Silas

Mislintat emphasizes: “Silas is part of the VfB family. He should also play football for VfB Stuttgart in the coming season as soon as he has recovered from his cruciate ligament tear. “

Sports director Thomas Hitzlsperger (39) explains VfB’s approach: “Immediately after Silas had confided in us, we initiated all the measures we felt were necessary and called in the responsible authorities. We are deliberately making this unusual case public on our own initiative to underline that we want to proceed as transparently as possible with consideration for the protection of our player. “

Statement by Silas Katompa Mvumpa

Katompa Mvumpa also makes an emotional statement. “I have lived in constant fear over the past few years and have also been very worried about my family in the Congo. It was a difficult step for me to reveal my story. I only dared to do this with the support of my new consultants. It became clear to me that I no longer have to be afraid and that we can put everything on the table together. I wouldn’t have dared to take this step if Stuttgart, my team and VfB hadn’t become a second home for me where I feel safe. Today I’m very relieved and I hope that I can use it to encourage other players who have had similar experiences with agents. I am deeply grateful to VfB Stuttgart for all the trust and support they have shown during this time. I hope that I can repay you and all VfB fans on the pitch. ”(Tsc / jpg)
