Metzelder suspected of spreading child pornography

Police have raided the home of former Germany and Real Madrid defender Christoph Metzelder over suspicions that he has been spreading child pornography, according to reports.

It was initially reported by German newspaper, Bild, that prosecutors in Hamburg have confirmed that there is an ongoing investigation involving a 38-year-old.

Metzelder was believed to be taking part in a coaching course at Hennef sports school in Rhine when investigators confiscated his mobile phone and accompanied him back to his house in Dusseldorf before searching the property.

Bild added that the raid came after information was provided to police by a woman from Hamburg who was in a relationship with Metzelder.

She showed 15 images of child pornography to the police that had been sent to her via WhatsApp.

Metzelder previously played for Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and the German national team.
