Franz defends actions

Published Add your comment

Karlsruhe defender Maik Franz, the self-proclaimed "most hated player in the Bundesliga", has defended his playing style in the wake of recent criticism.

Several weeks ago Stuttgart striker Mario Gomez earned a fine for insulting Franz in a live television interview after being given a rough ride in their Bundesliga clash.

Last weekend it was the turn of Eintracht Frankfurt´s Ioannis Amanatidis to express his displeasure at the way Franz had handled him during his side´s 1-0 win, claiming "such people ruin football."
