Szijjarto orders four consuls to Leipzig to ‘aid football fans in trouble’
Szijjarto said in a video that the consuls will be working within the Red Bull Arena during the match and will answer the phone to a Hungarian number throughout to help fans “who might get in trouble”, Szijjarto said. The Munich Consulate-General and the Berlin Embassy will be on 24-hour duty, he said.
The Hungarian national team will play the Nationalelf from 8.45pm on Friday.
In June 2021, German police detained 18 Hungarians on the day of a European championship qualifier between Hungary and Germany.
