The decision in Zoff’s court was postponed for Cologne star Anthony Modeste (34). The Frenchman must continue to fight for the nearly 350 thousand euros that he has put so far into an energy drink in vain, and is now even threatening the public prosecutor.

At 11:26 am, the head of the first civil section before the Bonn Regional Court stated that there should be another court date and that they would exchange views before the Regional Court again before a possible ruling on 3 June. Little sickness for Modest.

BILD exclusively reported the dispute: Modest is suing “Heavy 1 World GmbH” because he wanted to sell their energy drinks in his name in France, but claims that he never received the goods, and therefore demands a refund of approximately 325,000 euros. Already put in the license and product.

The energy drink company denied extradition and even offered to continue working together in court. Not a problem for Modest after all the trouble!

The entire confrontation just a day before the last important game of the season in Stuttgart (Saturday, 3.30pm) was not a fit for the French anyway. Although Modest diligently signed autographs and sided with fans to take selfies, he maintained he had more important things to do than having to appear in court on this day shortly before his last practice session.

“We’d better find a solution, because he makes himself look ridiculous,” Modist finally said, looking at representatives of Heavy 1 World GmbH, with concern. “I have training and play tomorrow,” Modist revealed. When I moved to China, the defendant came back and wanted to make me Big there. This time for 500,000 euros.”

But there was no solution. Also because Modest had to admit he hadn’t actually read the contract. who is credited with distributing cans of drinks (“I did not read the contract details. This employee of the defendant’s company was supposed to make the sale.”). The other party claims that the contract was read in German and French.

Modest plain text: “I’m a football player and not a businessman. I didn’t want to worry about anything other than paying for the license and products. In conversations it was said that the gentleman would take care of sales. At one point he came to me and said he wasn’t paid yet. So I told the plaintiff On him I want my money back. I’m cool, I wanted to find a solution, but it just got put off. The defendant always said, ‘If you don’t feel like it anymore, you can simply put me back in the license.'”

Does MODIST file a criminal complaint?

Instead, it is now a scam and the whole thing could become a matter for the prosecution. Reiner Dietz, Modeste’s attorney, on the other side: “Mr. Modeste is basically not accusing you of not receiving the cans. He’s accusing them of treason against him. We were hoping the defendant would realize the seriousness of the situation. Now we’re thinking of taking the whole thing to the attorney general.”

The next round will start in June. After that there must be a judgment or a hearing. Good for Modest: He doesn’t have to show up on a June date. After the Stuttgart match, Cologne’s top scorer (19 goals) can go on vacation …
